Course Content:

This course forms Module 4 of the safeguarding programme

This training course will seek to take participants on a learning journey from basic information about sexual offending, on to knowledge of a model to assist in understanding sexual offending, then finally to a knowledge of the current sex offender management structures.
The course training material will be delivered using a number of different methods to appeal to different learning styles:

  • Small group work using flip chart to note answers to specific questions
  • Finkelhor’s 4 Chairs whole group exercise, with one volunteer key participant
  • Paired working
  • Whole group discussion
  • Case study with quiz to check learning
  • Teaching from PowerPoint presentation
  • Discussion
  • Anonymised case examples

Please note: The 25 July 2019 is aimed at Homelessness Services Unit, Older People Services, Employment Plus and Anti-Human Trafficking, so will contain little corps focus. The training will focus on Blemished Disclosures which applies to volunteers and staff, so this day would also be useful for people who recruit and manage staff and volunteers
