Online Self-Paced Training & Resource Kit

Responding to Child Sexual Exploitation

Welcome & Introduction

Responding to Child Sexual Exploitation is an online self-paced training for caseworkers, residential workers, house supervisors and managers, therapeutic specialists and organisational leaders working in out of home care and therapeutic care.

The Centre for Excellence in Therapeutic Care was commissioned by the New South Wales Department of Communities and Justice to develop this training in response to recommendations made by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse (2017) to inform prevention and response to child sexual exploitation.  

Strategies to identify and disrupt opportunities for the sexual exploitation of children, including children in out-of-home care, depend on central coordination and multi-disciplinary approaches. This training and resource kit aims to equip workers with knowledge and strategies to support vulnerable young people at risk of exploitation.
