Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a practice where a female's genitals are deliberately cut, altered, or damaged - with no medical purpose. It's extremely painful and can be a serious risk to the health of girls and women. In the UK it is considered child abuse and is illegal.

In the wake of the first FGM conviction in the UK, this course will take an in-depth look at the background, the dangers and risks of the practice, and the perceived reasons for performing it. It will also identify the signs you should be on the lookout for.

The learning objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. To understand the social and cultural aspects of FGM
  2. To know the health consequences of FGM
  3. To be aware of legislation relevant to FGM
  4. To be able to recognise the indicators of FGM
  5. To understand managing FGM disclosure and safeguarding
  6. To know how to take appropriate action if you have concerns, including appropriately reporting concerns safely and seeking advice

This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
