Open to all practitioners including those with limited knowledge of child trafficking.
Target Group: The course is aimed at practitioners and managers in voluntary, independent and statutory agencies who work predominantly with children, young people and/or their parents/carers and who could contribute to assessing, planning, intervening and evaluating the needs of a child and parenting capacity where there are safeguarding concerns relating to child trafficking/modern day slavery. Child trafficking is child abuse. Children are recruited, moved or transported and then exploited, forced to work or sold. Children are trafficked for child sexual exploitation, benefit fraud, forced marriage, illegal adoptions. We will also consider unaccompanied asylum seekers who are trafficked.
domestic servitude such as cleaning, childcare, cooking, forced labour in factories or agriculture, criminal activity such as pick pocketing, begging, transporting drugs, working on cannabis farms, selling pirated DVDs, bag theft. Many children are trafficked into the UK from abroad, but children can also be trafficked from one part of the UK to another.
Course Aim: To enable practitioners to increase confidence of practitioners in this area of children’s safeguarding work, and raise and reinforce awareness and the multiagency response
Learning Outcomes: By the end of the course participants will
- Improve awareness, identification and safeguarding of child victims.
- Improve understanding of national and international legislation.
- Understand types of child trafficking and indicators of child trafficking.
- Improve knowledge of how to refer and protect victims.
- In the afternoon the group will look at case studies based on Surrey cases to help practitioners recognise trafficking (signs, symptoms and behaviour), understand what their role might be, how to respond and understand the referral processes, what agencies might offer in terms of support.
