Content Development for E-learning modules for travel and tourism industry partners
ECPAT International is a global network of civil society organisations working together to end the sexual exploitation of children. The ECPAT network currently has 109 member organisations in 96 countries in all regions of the world. All members are independent organisations or coalitions working against the sexual exploitation of children (SEC). The Secretariat of the Network is based in Bangkok, Thailand.
The Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism (“The Code”) is a multi-stakeholder initiative, hosted by ECPAT International, with the mission to provide awareness, tools and support to the travel and tourism industry in order to combat the sexual exploitation of children in contexts related to travel and tourism. The Code currently has over 300 member companies operating in more than 150 countries.
ECPAT International and The Code are currently reviewing their online tools to continue to support the private sector as a key stakeholder that can identify and prevent cases of sexual exploitation of children. Over 500,000 staff from a wide range of actors in the travel and tourism industry have already undertaken trainings. Staff of over 300 member companies of The Code have increased knowledge and gained practical skills on child protection. On several occasions, cases of sexual exploitation of children, including trafficking, have been prevented.
Ten existing e-learning modules are currently used, targeting different audiences within the wide range of travel and tourism companies. While these were developed over five years ago, The Code now aims to update these for content and presentation.
