A child is sexually abused when they are forced or persuaded to take part in sexual activities.

This doesn't have to be physical contact, and it can happen online. Sometimes, the child won't understand that what's happening to them is abuse.

They may not even understand that it's wrong, or they may be afraid to speak out.

Grooming is when someone builds an emotional connection with a child to gain their trust for the purposes of sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, or trafficking.

Children and young people can be groomed online or face-to-face, by a stranger or by someone they know - for example a family member, friend, or professional.

In this course, we will learn more about child sexual exploitation, grooming, and the impact.


The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  • To understand the nature of child sexual abuse
  • To be able to recognise the signs of sexual abuse
  • To know what can make a child vulnerable
  • To what child sexual exploitation is
  • To understand grooming and its impact
  • To be aware of the legal aspects of abuse and exploitation
  • To understand how to work with disclosure
  • To understand safeguarding and protective behaviours

This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
