Children with Learning Disabilities or Difficulties Facing Exploitation

By nwg at National

 

This course is about developing awareness of child exploitation and learning disabilities and difficulties.

The course will explore your role and multi-agency practice in;

  • Placing the child/young person at the heart of our work, listening to their experiences
  • Supporting parents and foster parents to be a resource for protection
  • Working with and alongside parents and carers
  • Working as a team across agencies
  • Making assessments and finding out about the child’s life and needs
  • Working with the police and trying to ensure that young people are seen as credible witnesses
  • Understanding behaviour as communication

Young people with SEND may often be isolated which makes them more vulnerable. Many young people never have a diagnosis, some are in mainstream schools, some in Pupil Referral Units, some are off-rolled or not in school at all.

Young people with SEND may often be isolated which makes them more vulnerable. Many young people never have a diagnosis, some are in mainstream schools, some in Pupil Referral Units, some are off-rolled or not in school at all.

We will look at the combined challenges faced by children and young people with learning needs, or who may have Autism or development delay, who have experienced trauma.

We will explore how young people with learning needs are seen and understood.

We will look at how we might pick up indications that a young person is being pushed around, at online risks and at how harm may be discovered or come to light and our role in this.

Recognising that there is no blue print for safety, and that these are challenges for workers, this course aims to open up discussion and change practice towards young people with learning needs.

Mind Your Language – Exploitation & Victim Blaming Webinar

By nwg at National

 

Please sign up as an NWG free member to access this course: https://www.nwgnetwork.org/register/

The language we use as professionals can have a significant, and potentially lifelong, impact on victims of exploitation. A victim of exploitation is never to blame for the abuse they have lived through, yet we live in times where victims are still blamed.

This webinar enables us to discuss victim-blaming language and how we can accurately and sensitively record and report on victim experiences. The aim of this webinar is to share practice between agencies and to explore ways in which we can develop the language we use.

There will be a presentation and discussion led by Sarah Brown, NWG’s Trainer, and a 30 minute Q & A to end the session.

This event will take place on Microsoft Teams – a calendar invite with the link to join will be sent to you prior to the event – please RSVP and check your inbox and spam/junk folder for the invite

Please sign up as an NWG free member to access this course: https://www.nwgnetwork.org/register/

This NWG CPD accredited course has been developed in collaboration with Edge Hill University’s Dr Mike Hartill to provide a greater comprehension around the issue of sexual abuse and exploitation within sports. The course provides attendees with the historical context and prevalence of child sexual exploitation in sport within the UK and beyond. The course looks towards developments in policy that have been put into place to safeguard children in sporting environments and how these may impact on our practice as individuals and as organisations. During the training day learning is enriched through the use of the voices of survivors of CSE in Sport.

The training is delivered by NWG’s Safeguarding in Sport Lead, Kevin Murphy who has a sound understanding of how young people need to be protected when engaging in community activities and has been involved in the International VOICE’s for Truth and Dignity project. This project involved 7 countries researching the experiences of those abused through sport and bringing that knowledge and those voices into his role.

This course is aimed at anyone working within sports who wants to broaden their understanding of abuse in sports along with multi-agency practitioners who work alongside children, young people and their families who wish to extend their understanding and practice in the field of sport.

Please sign up as an NWG free member to access this course: https://www.nwgnetwork.org/register/

This training course has been developed using the voices of families with lived experience of exploitation with the aim to embed parents as safeguarding partners within their organisations.

They share their experiences of services, the court process, the impact of exploitation on them as parents as well as on their child and wider family. Delegates will be encouraged to consider different models of practice and how we work as partners alongside families.

Training will complement the NWG Parental Support Benchmarking Tool which has been designed to support agencies to examine their current offer to parents affected by exploitation and to think about the next steps to improve engagement with parents as a safeguarding partner.

Further information on this training course can be found by following this link https://www.nwgnetwork.org/training/working-alongside-families-experts-by-experience/

Transitions: 16 to 18 and beyond – Online

By nwg at National

This training course aims to embed in practice some of the findings of NWG’s report into transitional support for victims of exploitation

Please sign up as an NWG free member to access this course: https://www.nwgnetwork.org/register/

Delivered by Steve Baguley, the NWG Exploitation Network Education and Community Lead.

The transition from Children’s to Adult Services has been highlighted as a national issue, with a ‘cliff-edge’ of support as vulnerable children turn 18. This training course has drawn on the knowledge and practice experience of Steve Baguley, the Education & Community Lead for NWG. Steve continues to engage with services across the country looking at approaches to transition planning and exploring the critical challenges facing practitioners who work with children approaching adulthood

This training course aims to embed in practice some of the findings of the NWG’s report into transitional support for victims of exploitation and complement our transition benchmarking tool which is designed to ensure an improved strategic response to the issue. Delegates will develop approaches to working with older children in preparation for transition and be provided with insight into adolescent brain development to better inform their practice. The training will support understanding and the implementation of relevant legislation and practice guidance surrounding transition. Delegates will be provided with guidance on planning for transition and bridging the gap between Adult and Children’s Services, as well as working with child exploitation victims into adulthood.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course delegates will be able to;

  • Recognise ways in which young people may be perceived and how this can impact on services they receive.
  • Consider challenges we may face when transitioning young people from children’s to adult services and how we might apply learning to counteract them.
  • Explain what research tells us about this cohort of young people.
  • Consider the issue of young people who are ‘hidden’ and how we might offer better support.
  • Compare and discuss ways in which practitioners assess and understand consent and the relevance of this issue to young people above the age of 16.
  • Identify and apply appropriate disruption strategies for young people.
  • Demonstrate the use of The Care Act 2014 and Mental Capacity Act 2005 and their appropriateness for young people age 16 and above.
  • Explain the impact of trauma and ways in which young people respond to trauma and manage emotions.
  • Consider how our language can be impactful and dehumanise young people and how we can work in a way that prevents this.
  • Reflect on examples of developing practice and consider how we might develop our own practice.
