Free course set to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation

schedule 11th January 2013 by Alex Bateman in Safeguarding Last updated on 24th April 2018

Free course for child exploitation

On 19th November 'Keep Them Safe' a free Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness course for parents will be launched.

We have developed the free course in partnership with leading charity Parents Against Child Sexual Exploitation (Pace) as a response to the results of a recent YouGov survey - Are parents in the picture - Professional and Parental perspectives of child sexual exploitation?.

The survey showed that only 12% of parents can identify all the key signs of child sexual exploitation and that 70% of teachers think a lack of parental knowledge is the main barrier to identifying and preventing cases of child sexual exploitation.

The short course (20-30mins) aims to equip parents with the information they need to protect their children from sexual exploitation.

Keep them safe will help parents to:

  • Understand child sexual exploitation
  • Find out how to spot the signs
  • Know who to report any concerns to
