ECPAT UK Training

ECPAT UK offers a comprehensive training programme, in line with statutory guidance and National Occupation Standards, with over twenty years' experience training to improve responses to child trafficking, modern slavery and child sexual exploitation. To register for a course, please download a booking form and send to

“This is the best training I have been on for a long time. Before I came, I had no awareness about child trafficking. Now my eyes have been opened, and I am going to think more about the children I work with.” 

Over the past 18 months we've seen huge changes to the legislation surrounding child trafficking, including new statutory guidance on the care of trafficked and unaccompanied children. The Modern Slavery Act, which came into force on 31st July 2015, created several new provisions to better protect trafficked and at-risk children in England and Wales. ECPAT UK has played a key role in campaigning for child protection to be put at the heart of the UK's anti-trafficking legislation, and our expert training is designed to make sure frontline staff understand these changes and how they affect their work. 

Since it was established in 1994, ECPAT UK has facilitated learning and development events for a wide range of organisations, including: travel industry partners, including ABTA - The Travel Association; community groups; multi-agency training with partners overseas; non-governmental organisations and local authorities in the UK. 

ECPAT UK’s comprehensive training programme has been highly successful, having trained and raised awareness among more than 3,000 multi-agency practitioners. We have reached practitioners across the UK and our programme is held in high regard across the statutory, voluntary and private sectors. A number of Local Safeguarding Children Boards commission our training on a rolling basis, which endorses the standard and quality of our services.

In June 2015 ECPAT UK were commissioned by the Home Office to deliver pilot training to  local authorities about new National Referral Mechanism procedures for child victims of trafficking, which comes into force in 2016.

The ECPAT UK multi-agency training programme is designed to enable practitioners to reach a required standard of practice in safeguarding children who may have been trafficked. It reflects a range of learning styles to enable participants to embed good practice into their usual responses when supporting children who may have been trafficked.
