A one day course

Child sexual exploitation (CSE) involves under-18s in exploitative situations, contexts and relationships. Every year in Wales hundreds of children are being sexually exploited and in the wake of learning from Rotherham and other cities, Children in Wales is offering a one day course to raise awareness of Child Sexual Exploitation.

This course gives anyone who works with children, young people and families the opportunity to know their statutory responsibilities in dealing with exploited children, how to identify children and young people who are at risk of CSE and spot the signs, definitions and models of CSE and professional responses within the Welsh context.

This course is aimed at professionals and practitioners working with children, young people and families in Social Care, Health, Education, other Statutory Agencies and Third Sector Organisations.

Course aims:

  • Definitions of Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE)
  • Who is at risk
  • Who are the perpetrators
  • Vulnerabilities and risk indicators

  • Legislation and guidance on CSE
  • SERAF – the Welsh response to CSE
