A recent study revealed that 137,000 women in England and Wales are estimated to be living with the consequences of FGM. To address this issue, the Home Office is championing a proactive approach and has recommended that all schools and colleges undertake training and awareness on the issues that FGM presents.


This course will ensure you understand what FGM is, the symptoms of it and how to act. All staff who work within a school setting must undertake this course. 


After completing this you should then consider other areas of school compliance.
