Special training on Responding to Disclosures of Sexual Assault/Harassment

IN RESPONSE to issues raised through our Gender Staff Forum, colleagues are putting together a half-day training package, aimed at any staff who have student contact.

Our aim is to provide attendees with some skills and knowledge to enable them to respond well, if a student discloses experiences of abuse, assault, domestic violence, or other forms of harassment related to gender.

We are aware from research conducted by the Students’ Union nationally, that there is a high incidence of abuse among student groups. We are also aware that hearing about rape, assault and abuse can be quite shocking, for staff members.

Our half-day training is participative and informal and there are some places available on the course on 10th June at 1.30pm.

Please book via the Training module on MyHR or contact Sarah May s.may@mmu.ac.uk for more information.
