The ECPAT UK e-learning course on child trafficking is a foundation level course that provides an excellent starting point for practitioners working with children who may have been trafficked. It supplements the ECPAT UK face-to face training courses, which are an essential element of safeguarding training.
This is a free resource that is appropriate for all professionals who work with children who may have been trafficked. The course provides users with an awareness of the main issues around victim identification and what steps to take to provide support to children and young people. This course covers the basic information required to identify a child who may have been trafficked, the legislation that underpins safeguarding procedures and guidance on how to talk with a child about their experiences. The course is presented in three short modules with interactive features to support learning.
To reflect differences in UK legislation, policies and procedures, three country specific versions are available: England, Scotland and Wales. All courses are available at http://course.ecpat.org.uk.
Also, ECPAT UK facilitate training courses at our National Training Centre, in central London, including specialist ‘Safeguarding Children: Introduction and Advanced Child Trafficking’. Full details can be found at www.ecpat.org.uk/training
