Sexual violence and sexual harassment in schools and colleges – training for staff

Duration: 1.5hrs

Recent evidence and Ofsted review findings on peer on peer sexual abuse have highlighted an urgent need to improve safeguarding processes and procedures. This is also reflected by the new standards set out in Keeping children safe in education (KCSIE), which sets out the statutory requirements for educational settings, including post 16 education.

Kidscape’s CPD accredited course explores the topics of sexual violence, sexual abuse and sexual harassment, exploring how educational settings can develop a ‘it can happen here’ approach, develop a culture of care and support and embed best practice standards.

Course content

  • Understand harmful sexual behaviour (including sexual violence and sexual harassment)
  • Take action to create a safe environment, a culture of care
  • How to respond calmly and effectively to concerns
  • Guidance on how to update your peer-on-peer abuse policy
  • how to communicate effectively with the wider community

Suitable for

Staff and volunteers who work with children and young people in schools, nurseries, alternative education providers, youth centres, family support venues, community groups, leisure centres and all other environments where adults have a duty of care to young people.
