Course Overview

CEOP is an abbreviation for ‘Child Exploitation Online Protection’ and is led by the National Crime Agency (NCA) through the UK and overseas to identify risks and threats to children from online activity and aims to bring offenders to account.

Professionals working within children and young people need to have a good understanding of CEOP, how this links into the principles of safeguarding vulnerable children and what action to take if there are concerns that the safety of a child is at risk on line.

This training course will provide a good knowledge of CEOP, enable people to recognise risks on line, consider ways to support and encourage children to be safe on line and to know what action to take if concerns are raised.
