Online Training: Child Criminal Exploitation & Gang Labelled Offending Awareness
February 17 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Vulnerable young people who are exploited or manipulated into committing crimes are victims in need of safeguarding & support.
Whilst interventions for these are increasingly more available, young people are still often criminalised & regarded as having ‘made a choice’ to take part in illegal activity.
This unique 3-hour interactive training looks at young people’s involvement in gangs and the exploitation of vulnerable children by organised crime in a gang context
As young people continue to expand and integrate their activity on social media into their daily lives, it is unsurprising that online-offline boundaries are becoming increasingly blurred. Whilst social media offers huge potential to enhance the quantity and quality of communication between people across the world, it is also raising some serious challenges.
With a perfect blend of theory and practical skills that you can use with young people.
This training consists of real-time sessions & techniques, discussion groups and opportunities to practice and network with each other.
- Understand youth violence
- Child criminal exploitation
- The difference between peer groups, gangs and organised crime
- The role of the social media within a criminal context
- Understanding the role of girls as victims and perpetrators

This training can be linked to your continued professional development CPD and is a great way to network with other professionals
