Online Learning Modules

''s never acceptable' webinar series.


The following video modules have been developed as an online version of our face-to-face training ‘Bullying…It’s Never Acceptable’.

The training uses the Scottish Government’s anti-bullying guidance, Respect for All, to define bullying and introduce practical strategies to address bullying behaviour when it occurs.

By providing a free online version of the training, we aim to provide organisations and individuals a convenient and flexible way to access and share learning in relation to recognising, responding, and preventing bullying behaviour.

As you make your way through the modules, please remember to complete all four surveys: each one will take under a minute and will provide us with vital information regarding the relevance, effectiveness and quality of the training.

Download the ‘Learning Module Guidance Notes’ for advice on how and when to use these videos.

The right response can make all the difference to a child or young people being able to cope with and recover from experiences of bullying.
