NI TDPT - Raising CSE Awareness
Taxi drivers are in an ideal position to play a key role in helping to protect vulnerable young people. In their work, they may see or suspect cases of child sexual exploitation but do not know what to do with any concerns they may have. All taxi drivers in Northern Ireland must complete 35 hours periodic training every five years. This training can cover a range of subjects ranging from Vehicles Systems to Personal Health and Wellbeing. The Driver and Vehicle Agency (DVA), responsible for periodic training, believe that CSE training fits in well with taxi driver periodic training and as such it will now be included as a subject area within taxi periodic training syllabus. This move will ensure that no additional expense will be incurred by taxi drivers who take CSE awareness training as part of their mandatory 35 hours periodic training.
New NI TDPT Application Form Available
The NI TDPT application form has been updated to include CSE and some other minor administrative form completion changes.
