This course is a critical exploration of the way risk is perceived, employed, and assessed in child sexual exploitation – and the way vulnerability is being understood in children of all ages.

For professionals who work with children thought to be ‘at risk’ of, or experiencing, child sexual exploitation, this course looks at the evidence for so-called ‘risk-taking behaviours’ and childhood vulnerabilities versus the evidence we have from wide empirical studies. What can we learn when we really put risk and vulnerability under the microscope and how can we support young people to take positive risks?

The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  • To understand the critique of using language such as “risk” and “vulnerability” in CSE
  • To be aware of the use of language and the concepts of risk and vulnerabilities as “leading to” CSE
  • To understand why there should be a perception and language change in risk and vulnerability 
  • To know why age-appropriate child behaviours and developments should not be problematised as risks or vulnerabilities 

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