Do you want to develop your awareness of child criminalisation (including county lines) and sexual exploitation to help keep the children and young people you work or come into contact with safe?

Our 1-day Level 2 Foundation Course is based on over 20 years’ experience of working alongside families affected by child exploitation. It is for anyone who works with children at risk of exploitation, or who comes into contact with children and families, in their role.

This training will increase your understanding of the methods offenders use to groom and exploit children and young people, and how to respond.
