#LookCloser learning programme on child exploitation and abuse

We’re delighted to invite you to join us for our latest #LookCloser programme of learning. We have developed our sessions based on learning from The Children’s Society and wider partners to tackle the issues of child exploitation and abuse.

All sessions are free of charge and delivered on Microsoft Teams Live which means:
– Interaction with the presenters and participants will be limited
– There will however, be a Q&A function
– We will use tools such as Menti to provide opportunities for engagement and discussion.

The timetable below has links to each learning event on Ticket Tailor, where you can book on to as few or as many events as you please. All of our sessions have been designed for various professional audiences, so please share these events with anyone you think would benefit from attending.

If you have any questions about our learning events, please contact prevention@childrenssociety.org.uk
