Female Genital Mutilation: Face-to-Face Modular Course

Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is the partial or total removal of external female genitalia for non-medical reasons. It is known as female circumcision or cutting and is often carried out for religious, social or cultural reasons. FGM can cause severe and long-lasting damage to physical and emotional health. It is child abuse, is dangerous and a criminal offence.

Ethica Solutions’ Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) training course provides face-to-face guidance and advice to all those who may interact and care for children and young people. It is suitable for all practitioners within healthcare. This modular course is designed to act as a two-hour CPD stand-alone or half day workshop and/or as a session within a wider, day-long Public Protection Safeguarding Learning and Development event.

Other bespoke modular courses are available in this series. These can be tailored to meet your specific requirements relating to various areas of increased or localised risk and be delivered alongside our FGM course in a single Public Protection learning event. These include:
