Active Bystander Training
Active bystanders are people who are aware of an abusive situation, and choose to speak up and say or do something. An active bystander assesses a situation to determine what kind of help, if any might be appropriate. They evaluate their options and choose a strategy for responding.
As part of the It Stops Here Campaign, we run monthly Active Bystander Workshops for KCL student leaders, including presidents and captains of sports clubs and societies. If you attend ISH Active Bystander Workshop you will learn how to:
- Identify sexual consent and sexual harassment
- Recognise your role as a student leader in maintaining a safe, inclusive and supportive university environment
- Demonstrate the ability to make positive interventions safely
- Identify resources and reporting options for students who have experienced sexual harassment.
Our Active Bystander Training is peer-led and facilitated by It Stops Here Student Ambassadors.
