Covered in this course
The Sexual Harassment Awareness Training course is broken down into 3 sections.
1) Sexual Harassment Awareness
This first section clarifies what sexual harassment is, the different types, and the possible side effects for the victim. We also look at the legal aspects and the importance of a positive workplace culture.
2) Identifying Sexual Harassment
This is a scenario-based section. We present you with workplace examples and then you need to decide whether you think each situation is sexual harassment or not. We have a particular focus on subtle behaviours to shed much-needed light on the ‘grey areas’.
3) Confronting and Reporting Sexual Harassment
Our final section takes you through the two stages of confronting sexual harassment - the informal approach and the formal route. We cover each stage and provide you with information on the different external services that are available.
Sexual Harassment Awareness Certificate
Each of our courses ends with a multiple choice test to measure your knowledge of the material.
This Sexual Harassment in the Workplace course concludes with a 20 question multiple choice test with a printable certificate. In addition, brief in-course questionnaires guide the user through the sections of the training and are designed to reinforce learning and ensure maximum user engagement throughout.
As well as printable user certificates, training progress and results are all stored centrally in your LMS (Learning Management System) and can be accessed any time to reprint certificates, check and set pass marks and act as proof of a commitment to ongoing legal compliance.

Real user reviews

The course set out clearly what its objectives were and achieved them using simple language and practical scenarios which helped the learner understand the issues and the recommended procedures to follow. The speakers and graphics made it user-friendly and together with the additional videos and documents, it provided a good variety of materials to help everyone learn.
Well presented and easy to follow. Reiterated key points in an appropriate way.
Workplace-wide summary of harassment and remedies.
As a retired and highly experienced police detective specialising in sexual offences and family protection, I was sceptical at first - especially given the shambolic manner in which this employer recently dealt with a complaint of SH. The course, however, was very good, I thought, exactly what all staff in this organisation require, to begin to get an understanding of the real and modern world. Hopefully they will also sign up to Equality and Diversity training!!
Good to have this training, for us to be aware.
Comes from a good angle of wanting to protect the employee, encourages reasonable responses to behaviour, very comprehensive, takes the matter seriously
This Sexual Harassment Awareness Training is important for everyone to be knowledgeable about their rights.
This is very useful and informative!
Legislation relating to Sexual Harassment
It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work. Take a look at relevant legislation below.
Employees are protected by a few different acts of parliament if they feel they’re being sexually harassed at work:
- The Sex Discrimination Act protects people from discrimination on the grounds of sex or marital status.
- The Criminal Justice and Public Order Act made intentional harassment a criminal offence.
- The Protection from Harassment Act made it a criminal offence to pursue conduct that leads to harassment, or fear that violence will be used. If convicted, someone can be sentenced to up to six months in prison, or get a fine of up to £5000.
- The Equality Act ensures the workplace is a fair environment for all employees, whilst respecting the protected characteristics of each individual.
- The Health & Safety at Work Act ensures that employers are responsible for the health, safety and welfare of all employees while they’re at work.
