Sexual Misconduct and Violence Policy: Disclosure Training available for PGRs

(25 October 2019)

At any time, someone you know, work with, teach, or care about could disclose to you that they have been subjected to sexual violence or domestic abuse. If they do, then how you respond in the moment that follows matters a great deal. We run free training courses to help staff and PGR students who teach fellow students to understand how best to respond if someone discloses to them highlighting the responsiblities that all staff have under the Sexual Misconduct and Violence Policy. For dates and times, please see the website.

The following in-person sessions are bookable via the online training system

Level 1: SMV Awareness and Disclosure Training The aim of this course is to raise awareness of sexual misconduct and violence while highlighting how to respond to disclosures and signpost to support in line with the Sexual Misconduct and Violence Policy. All staff are encouraged to attend. Participants can choose to attend a session offered centrally at 09:00-11:00, 11:30-13:30 or 14:30-16:30 on the days indicated below. Additional sessions will be offered in specific departments, dates to be confirmed.
