Course Overview

Bullying is defined by the Anti-Bullying Alliance as ‘the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. It can happen face to face or online’ and is an issue impacting millions of children in the UK including children with extra vulnerabilities including children in care and special educational support.

This training course confirms what bullying is whilst challenging misconceptions, identifies different characteristics which may increase vulnerability in children and considers different methods of bullying.

This training course considers factors which may influence a child to show bullying behaviours including their own potential trauma and previous life experiences and explores ways of supporting children who bully in recognising their own behaviours.

This training course identifies potential indicators which may raise concerns that a child may be being bullied and considers ways of supporting a child who makes an allegation of being bulled (or has been bullied) and the procedure which needs to be followed in raising concerns of suspected or actual bullying incidents. This is a Level 3 accredited course.
