child sexual exploitation

dialogue is a specialist safeguarding company that works with organisations to understand how they work with young people and designs courses that fit their needs.

Our specialist child sexual exploitation training is designed by experienced practitioners, senior managers and senior police officers and has been delivered very successfully as multi-agency training, within organisations through to Local Children’s Safeguarding Board level. In addition to our introductory levels, we run experiential courses that take practitioners, managers or strategic leads through the processes of strategy discussions, planning an investigation and responding to issues. The course brings through the real challenges in practice in designing effective interventions or highlighting problems in information sharing.
