Online courses to help manage harmful sexual behaviour in primary or secondary schools in the UK

Are you aware of the differences between healthy sexual behaviours and those which are of concern? Do you know what to do if a child or young person has experienced sexual harassment and abuse or is displaying sexualised behaviour?

Get the knowledge and skills you need to recognise, report and record sexualised behaviour concerns with our elearning courses for primary or secondary schools.

Primary schools

Learning about sex and sexual behaviour begins at a young age. It’s often a healthy and normal part of a child’s development, but concerning behaviour can also start to emerge. An early response can help prevent children from harming themselves and others.

Secondary schools

Children at secondary school often spend more time unsupervised, can be greatly influenced by their peer group and have more exposure to social media, the internet and technology. These factors can influence their understanding of what healthy sexual behaviour looks like.

Primary and secondary schools training packages
