Safeline is delighted to be working in a unique partnership with Exeter College, in Devon, to develop and deliver a training package to support staff in further education settings to recognise and respond to sexual harassment and sexual abuse.

The initial phase of this delivery model is now complete following Safeline’s delivery of a “train the trainer” session to 40 staff on Monday June 20th.

Phase two will be rolled out on Wednesday July 6th with approximately 900 staff. The training will be a hybrid online and in-person session to ensure all staff at the college feel confident addressing and tackling sexual harassment and sexual abuse with young people. 

The course covers in depth the Ofsted review of sexual abuse in schools and colleges and DfE recommendations regarding how to prevent and respond to reports of sexual violence and harassment.

Colin Walker, Head of Prevention and Early Intervention at Safeline said:

“Safeline exists to prevent sexual violence and to support those affected. We are extremely excited to be delivering our highly effective training on a national basis and look forward to further partnership working with Exeter College.”

Dee Rowett, Director of Teaching, Learning and Development commented,

 “We are acutely aware of the importance of providing dedicated support and training to all our staff to ensure everyone feels confident, and supported, to respond effectively to sexual harassment and sexual violence in educational settings. We are keen to develop our positive partnership with Safeline beyond this staff training programme and to hopefully collaborate with Safeline to develop something which may benefit other schools and colleges in the future.”
