The ‘Everyone’s Invited movement’ and OfSTED’s subsequent review into Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence have highlighted the sheer prevalence of these behaviours in Secondary schools. This course aims to give a greater understanding into Harmful Sexual Behaviour, how it can be challenged, what responses should be given and how schools can an embed a culture that minimises or even eradicates the prevalence of this.
