About the Course

Course Duration: 1 hour and 21 minutes (approx.)

All non-teaching staff have a statutory duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children at their school/college. They should be aware of their legal responsibilities to ensure they are able to recognise any breach of children’s rights if they are subjected to sexual violence or sexual harassment.

This Essential CPD course provides you with the core content you need to understand your statutory safeguarding requirements around sexual harassment and sexual violence in schools.

Split into bite-sized modules, the training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and most time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high-quality remote video CPD format which is accessible on any device, any time, anywhere.

Developed by Lorna Ponambalum, safeguarding expert and senior leadership education professional, the course is split into five modules. The course consists of learning through video modules, completion of tasks, further reading and viewing external resources. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives from the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process and complete all relevant activities to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
