Taxi Driver Safeguarding and Child Sexual Exploitation Training
Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council understands that there is a need to increase the ability of hackney carriage and private hire drivers to be able to spot the signs of child sexual exploitation and take appropriate action to protect children. An e-learning programme, provided by Barnardos, has been written specifically for you as a taxi driver to provide the knowledge and understanding about safeguarding concerns and child sexual exploitation.
All drivers of hackney carriages and private hire vehicles must complete the safeguarding and child sexual exploitation e-learning programme. New drivers must provide evidence of passing the course before a licence is granted. All existing drivers must provide evidence of passing the course by the 5th June 2018.
The cost of this course is £15.
