Female Genital Mutilation: Recognising and Preventing FGM

A free online safeguarding training course developed for the Home Office by Virtual College. Over 100,000 people have so far registered for this course.95% of those who have completed the course have said they would now do something differently in their role.

Background to this free safeguarding course

A recent study revealed that 137,000 women in England and Wales are estimated to be living with the consequences of FGM. To address this issue, the Home Office is championing a proactive approach and has launched this free online FGM training package.

Throughout this course, we follow a young girl named Hope as she encounters the key issues relating to FGM and we see how they affect her throughout her life. The training will help a wide range of professionals to identify and assist girls who are at risk of FGM.

This course is useful for anyone who is interested in gaining an overview of FGM, particularly frontline staff in healthcare, police, border force and children’s social care.
