Who should attend

This course is aimed at HR professionals in education institutions who advise or provide guidance on the investigation and management of sexual harassment complaints against staff or who are responsible for the drafting/updating/application of their institution’s policies on sexual harassment, grievance and discipline.


The issue of sexual harassment continues to be high profile with widespread local, national and international coverage across multiple sectors and jurisdictions.

− strategies for managing complaints and what to include in your policies and procedures to support this
