Given that 1 in 2 women and 1 in 5 men in the UK have been sexually harassed in their workplace (ComRes, BBC Radio 5 live 2017), our course addresses an urgent need to provide organisations with the ability to identify sexual harassment and its impact, and support them to create harassment-free working environments.

The interactive elements in this sexual harassment e-learning course are invaluable to each staff member’s learning experience, having crafted engaging scenarios covering some of the biggest issues and most widely held misconceptions. Topics covered include: ‘Are one-off events considered harassment?’ and why occurrences of sexual harassment should not be allowed to hide behind the pretence of ‘banter’.

Who is the course for?

The course is specifically designed to equip staff with the ability to recognise the signs of sexual harassment, to know the steps necessary to report sexual harassment, and empower staff with the knowledge and tools they need to get support or take action in the workplace.

This course should take around 20 minutes to complete. Employees can bookmark their progress before exiting the course, and resume from that point.

At Marshall Elearning we’re totally focused on creating content that’s exactly right for your learners. That’s why we’ve built our business around customising our existing courses to match the needs of specific organisations. And if something completely original’s required, we’ll make a bespoke course for you from scratch.

When we do this, our approach is guided by a few key principles.

Organisational Need
Why do you need to provide learning for your users – specifically? Is there a compliance need, a requirement to raise performance – or generate positive outcomes for external stakeholders? We prioritise making this clear as the first step in all of our projects.

Who are your learners? What are their preferred learning styles? What do they know already? How confident are they with using technology? We’ll put these questions to you, and base our approach around the picture we build up.

Learning Outcomes
We use these to decide what every screen in every course we make is intended to achieve. What is it – exactly – that learners need to explain, describe, distinguish or list? Defining these up-front keeps every project on course as we move from the initial proposal, through to storyboarding and then development.

Page-turning e-learning just doesn’t work. All of our courses are highly interactive, making extensive use of scenarios in particular. Rich media is used as appropriate, from audio-visual resources through to animations and bespoke graphics.

Respect for Learners
Treating learners as adults is vital to us. People don’t learn well if they feel they’re being patronised, and we aim to let users manage their own learning experience. We do this by writing our courses with an honest, direct tone, and giving learners choices in the form of additional learning resources and open navigational features.

‘What’s in it for me?’ is a question that all of our learners should be able to answer.
