What can I do as a teacher?

As a professional working with young people, you may have opportunities to identify issues early so it is important to familiarise yourself with the signs that a young person is being exploited and to share this information with your colleagues or professionals in other agencies.

Other steps you can take to help protect young people include:

  • Staying alert to changes in behaviour and investigate these further

  • Ensuring you know who the child protection lead is in your workplace and that you are aware of the procedure to follow if you have           concerns about a young person.

  • Thinking about the ways that you might be able to better support and help young people to share information if they are worried about       their own or a friend’s situation.

  • Indentifying opportunities to educate young people about healthy relationships and about sexual exploitation.

The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) runs an online training programme for professionals.
