About the Event

We anticipate this training will be of great use to local organisations working to prevent youth violence and exploitation.


Child Exploitation definitions with examples to include:

  • CSA/E (sexual exploitation/FGM/Coerced Internal Concealment)
  • CCE (gangs/drugs - note, we will discuss the problematic use of the term gangs)
  • CFE (financial)
  • Exploitation in Digital Contexts

Awareness of children and young people and the risks assocatiated with little or no engagement with peers or professional (more activity based):

  • Grooming Model
  • Isolated CYPs, via grooming, life circumstance, bullying, etc (tough on foundations of professional curiosity)
  • Who/what act as Protective Factors (contextual safeguarding themes)
  • Our Perception of what a CYP sees as a Protective Factor (touch on fuondations of professional curiosity and linking with the grooming model)
  • How victim-blaming language impacts how we are seen to CYPs and how they interact with us (share our appropraite language guide)
  • Risk factors (touch on foundations of professional curiosity)

We have a maximum of 25 places, so bookings are being taken on a first come, first served basis.  If you would like more information or wish to apply for a place, please email:
