Child Criminal Exploitation

Child Criminal Exploitation (CSE)  is where children and young people are used, through whatever means, to engage in criminal activity by other young people or adults who are able to coerce them to do so. The young people involved may not identify themselves as being ‘exploited’ as such, but it is clearly to their detriment that they are involved in this type of activity. Illegal drugs is a key activity for gang-involved children and young people. Children and young people are being recruited to travel to areas away from home to sell drugs. In the worst cases this can be a form of child trafficking as young people find themselves in unsafe environments, completely isolated and with no way of contacting anyone for support.

This course looks at all aspects of CSE, providing foster carers and social workers with an in-depth  understanding of the issues and risk for children within the care system.
