Event description

Description

This session is delivered in partnership with Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre, and covers the prevalence of rape and sexual violence, its definition and the legal framework; attitudes, the effect and impact of sexual violence; barriers to disclosure and reporting; working with and supporting survivors; internal and external sources of support and the University procedure for reporting student cases of harassment or sexual misconduct.

The 2 hour session is aimed at all collegiate University staff who work directly with students and therefore may receive a disclosure from a student regarding harassment or sexual misconduct. Following the course staff will have the knowledge to respond appropriately to a disclosure, to signpost to a range of appropriate support and to explain what reporting mechanisms are available within the University.
