This course is designed as an entry level course teaching professional persons who deal with at risk people about he risk factors and signs that exist with those at risk of gang membership or criminal exploitation. Having identified risk students are given advice on how to deal with at risk persons and are given personal guidance on how to do this whilst remaining professional. This is an international problem and is a growing threat. We discuss how preventing gang crime and exploitation is not the sole responsibility of a single agency. Everyone from parents, local authority to law enforcement have a duty to prevent this area of high harm criminality. Prevention is better than cure and we aim to equip professionals with the knowledge they need to identify those at risk or are actively involved in crime so that interventions and safeguarding can be implemented. By the end of the course students will possess knowledge that will assist them with their work and will enable them to commence diversion proceedings with a view of supporting the at risk person away from a criminal life. The course is delivered by Martyn Linton who was an at risk youth who got involved in a lower level street gang. He left the life behind after a chain of events and now teaches professionals how to respond to gangs and exploitation.
