    Target audience: This course is aimed at those people who are working directly with children and young people, and their managers. 

    This is a CPD accredited course.

    Course pre-requisites: This is an advanced level training course and therefore delegates will need to already have a good baseline knowledge of CSE and its complexities- this should include an awareness of missing and the complexities of consent along with an understanding of the impact of CSE and how this may manifest

    Learning outcomes: By the end of the course delegates will be able to;

    • Identify and apply to practice the skills needed to ensure the rights of the child underpin the work we do.
    • Recognise and describe how sexualised images and material can impact the lives of young people today. -
    • Recognise when victim blaming occurs and have confidence in our practice to challenge this discrimination. 
    • Demonstrate good practice when arranging and facilitating meetings involving young people and their parents or carers. 
    • Explain what self blame is and how this effects young people and their emotional wellbeing.
    • Define trauma and describe how it might manifest. 
    • Recognise ways in which we can develop our practice through the consideration of different models of working with trauma. 
    • Delegates will use a case study along with their knowledge and practice to analyse and question the case study in order to make an assessment and to plan how they might intervene and disrupt child sexual exploitation
