Training package to help teams understand what child sexual abuse is and how to respond

This two-day course, delivered by experts from the NSPCC, will help improve understanding and knowledge about child sexual abuse – including how to identify, prevent and respond to it.

What will teams learn?

The training uses case studies, small group activities and interactive tools to help professionals respond to child sexual abuse.

After completing the training, teams will be able to:

  • identify the types of child sexual abuse (CSA)
  • use appropriate language
  • understand the research base
  • determine ways to support most vulnerable groups at risk for CSA
  • identify the ways CSA can impact children, their families, and society
  • recognise, respond, report and record concerns
  • share best practice with others in your network.

“I liked the 'feel' of the course, which the trainers encouraged to be open and engage in discussions. I like the mixture of information sharing, videos, discussions and real life stories.”
