Description

'Prevent' and 'Child Sexual Exploitation' Awareness in Education

This half-day event is delivered in two parts and is designed to ensure that education staff receive the training specified by the Home Office in relation to the prevention of terrorism and gain a clear understanding of child sexual exploitation particularly in reference to children in education

Part 1 of the session:

The Prevent duty is the duty in the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 on specified authorities, in the exercise of their functions, to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism. This duty refers to governing bodies, school leaders and school staff in maintained schools (including nursery schools), non-maintained special schools, proprietors of independent schools (including academies and free schools), alternative provision academies and 16-19 academies.

The Home Office has specified the training that is needed for school staff and helps them to make good judgements about behaviour that might indicate the presence of radicalisation. This course is of particular interest to safeguarding leads.

Outcomes: Participants will have:

  • Learned how the Home Office is expecting all education staff to know in relation to the risk of terrorism

  • Explored how to respond appropriately to concerns about terrorism in the best interests of the welfare of children and young people


Part 2 of the session:

Action to tackle sexual exploitation should be proactive, focusing on prevention, early identification and intervention, as well as the prosecution of perpetrators. Any intervention needs to be managed to safeguard children and young people and to support the gathering of evidence to increase the chance of successful criminal prosecutions of perpetrators. This will safeguard potential future victims.

Early intervention is likely to be far more effective than intervention at a later stage when the impact on the child or young person’s health or development is likely to have long-term implications. Prevention strategies should therefore be regarded as a key part of agencies’ approaches to sexual exploitation and educational establishments have a key role to play in this.

Outcomes: Participants will have:

  • Explored the ways in which children and young people are sexually exploited

  • Increased their knowledge on this subject and identidified what resources are available for both professionals and sexually exploited children


This course is ideal for anyone working in Education, particulaly Headteachers, Designated Safeguarding Leads and Senior Team members in Education
