Take part in our sexual harassment prevention training

The #NeverOK project offers a number of training courses which aim to prevent sexual harassment on or off campus.

Bringing in the Bystander® Training

Aimed at: staff and students
Duration: 2 hours

Please be aware that course looks at case studies of sexual violence, and may be triggering or upsetting.

We have all been in situations where we have witnessed something that made us feel uncomfortable. But we weren't quite sure what to do about it, or we thought about a great come-back on the way home!

The Bringing In The Bystander programme® gives people to tools to become effective and safe bystanders, whether that is in the moment, or having a quiet word at a more opportune time.

The programme was developed by the University of New Hampshire and has been delivered at universities across the world, with significant research demonstrating its effectiveness at encouraging attitude change and increasing bystander behaviours.

To arrange training for your group, please contact Josh Callander (for staff training) or Alisha Lobo (for student training).

Bringing in the Bystander® Train the Trainer Course

Aimed at: staff and students
Duration: 2 hours

As part of the strategy to roll out the Bringing in the Bystander course as widely as possible across the University and The SU, we can train staff and students to become bystander trainers themselves.

Joining a group of active facilitators, you would be expected to deliver a minimum of two training courses a year, to stay familiar with the content. In particular, we would like to hear from male-identifying or non-binary students or staff who would like to become facilitators.

To arrange training for your group, please contact Josh Callander (for staff training) or Alisha Lobo (for student training).

Good Night Out Training

Aimed at: Hospitality staff
Duration: 1 hour

Inspired by the Good Night Out Campaign, this training aims to prevent sexual harassment for students on night’s out. It teaches bar staff to recognise sexual harassment, and how to respond if a student tells them that they have been harassed, groped, followed or otherwise made to feel uncomfortable.

To arrange training for your group, please contact Alisha Lobo.
