In 2015 there was a legal duty on all regulated professionals in relation to Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) called the Mandatory Reporting Duty. This meant that any professional who signs up to a regulatory body to be able to practice their profession, would have to report to the police any known cases of FGM.

This course will include:

  • What is FGM
  • The signs of FGM
  • How to respond
  • Where to get further advice around the issue.

Participants will leave this course equipped with the knowledge and skills to be able to deliver awareness training back in their own settings.
