    Target Group

    This course is suitable for staff and volunteers who work with children, young people, families and parents or carers where they are in a position to identify signs of child abuse or neglect and who may then be asked to contribute to assessing, planning or intervening and reviewing the needs of the child and parenting capacity where there are safeguarding concerns.

    If you are an early years practitioner you should complete the "Designated Officer Child Protection Refresher Training."

    Training Objectives

    At the end of the course delegates will be able to:-

    • Identify and assess the boundaries of what constitutes sexual abuse
    • Identify the personal, professional and social context of practice in this field
    • Recognise the behaviour and reactions of sexually abused children
    • Recognise the impact of internet child pornography and trafficking
    • Understand the preservation of evidence and timely referrals

    Suggested Frequency

    • On completion of Group 3 Core – Interagency Child Protection Training you will need to renew your safeguarding training by completing 1 x Refresher (Special Interest) course every 3 years (every 2 years if you work in Education). In addition you are also strongly recommended to do Group 2 Awareness (ELearning Module).                  NB It is not recommended that you simply repeat Group 3 Core as a means of renewing your safeguarding training
    • If your safeguarding training is up to date but you want to do this course because of a particular interest (Special Interest), you do not need to re-do Group 2 Awareness (ELearning Module).

    Event Description

    This is a one day, face to face, multi-agency course, delivered by an experienced trainer that looks at the impact of child sexual abuse on individuals.    Delegates will be given information about how to recognise the signs and symptoms of sexual abuse. They will also explore their own individual values and attitudes to sexuality. The role of the internet and social media in online grooming will be discussed along with the signs of child sexual exploitation and trafficking.  Course materials draw on research and Serious Case Reviews, both local and national.
