Certificate in Understanding Bullying and Harassment at Work

About the Course

Duration: 167 minutes (approx.)

School leaders are responsible for preventing bullying and harassment at school and are liable for any harassment suffered by their staff. According to the TUC, 29% of employees reported being bullied at work. Of these, 35% left their jobs because of bullying and 46% said it affected their performance.

This essential CPD course provides you with the core content you need to understand the legal positions on harassment and bullying within a workplace setting, the responsibilities of employers and how to correctly respond to incidents.

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.

Delivered by Stephen Burnage, a school leadership specialist and expert practitioner with over 25 years’ teaching experience, the course has been divided into six modules with a knowledge assessment at the end to help you evidence your learning.

Designed in line with the following policies:

  • Equality Act 2010
  • Human Rights Act 1998
