Course Content

Female Genital Mutilation Awareness

The purpose of this course is to explain what FGM is and why it is important in the context of safeguarding children and young people. FGM is a criminal offence. It is child abuse and a form of violence against women and girls. Therefore there is a mandatory duty on all those who work in schools and other educational establishments to report a disclosure or their concerns about the risk of FGM without delay, as part of their wider safeguarding duty of care.

This course is based on the 'Mutli-agency statutory guidance on female genital mutilation (April 2016)' issued by the HM Government.

Test & Certificate

The Female Genital Mutilation course concludes with one multiple choice questionnaire with a printable certificate. As well as printable user certificates, your training progress and results are stored on your learning management platform.
