CPD training on Child Internet Safety
for professionals working with children
CATS Child Internet Abuse and Safety courses are short training course for professionals working within the child protection
arena, including legal professionals, children's services, counsellors and therapists, police
and the courts, aimed at enabling them to discover how the internet
and mobile phone technology are used by online sex offenders and how
to best identify young victims' vulnerabilities for preventative messages
and actions. The courses explore issues around internet and mobile
phone abuse from both offenders and victims' perspective and will equip
participants with a clear understanding of how new technologies are
used by children and young people, including their online risk taking
behaviour, and how paedophiles use the internet to source, groom and
target children. The courses also covered the newly emerging issue of peer-to-peer cyber-bullying.
note that in addition to generic one-day open-booking courses, we also
offer courses and workshops that are tailor-made to specific requirements
of organisation or agency. All courses and workshops are run by experts
with long experience in the field of Child Protection and Internet Policing.
