Interactive Webinar: Young Women & Girls: Child Sexual Exploitation & Gangs Training

July 15 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Increase awareness of the experiences of young people affected by child sexual exploitation (CSE)

Identify vulnerabilities, behaviour and risk indicators for young people experiencing or at risk of CSE

Essential for anyone with safeguarding responsibilities for children and young people, this introductory training has been designed for youth workers to raise awareness about the Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) of girls and young women.

Complex, often relationship driven, we will look at this emotive topic in relation to gangs and County Lines to develop the skills to identify CSE and respondappropriately

This includes what the term means, 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 will 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. It will also explain the UK laws intended to safeguard children and share best practice in responding to CSE.
