Essential for anyone with safeguarding responsibilities for children and young people, we bring this training for youth workers under a lens of gangs and County Lines to develop the skills to identify Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) and how to respond appropriately. We look at different models of child sexual exploitation, additional risks for vulnerable young women and girls, roles females can play in gangs, how to identify potential signs of grooming and the links between CSE and Child Criminal Exploitation, trafficking and Modern Slavery.
We also consider some of the racial and gender-based stereotypes and assumptions made about lifestyle, how this relates to ‘rape culture’ and how these might impact on perceptions of things like choice, consent and criminal coercion. Using learning from the Serious Case Reviews for Rotherham and Oxford, this training offers practical tips for engaging young women and girls in protective conversations and ways that youth work can contribute to build the skills to make healthy choices and stay safe.
We also explain the UK laws to help safeguard children and share best practice in responding to CSE.
This training is a must for any professional working with children or young people and their families, parents or carers. It’s suitable for various settings and either group or 1:1 dynamics.
