For students:

We are hosting a free OCN level 2 accredited course in Peer Mentoring & Facilitation which will be facilitated by the drama and arts based domestic abuse charity, Tender. 
It is a unique training programme for young people who wish to learn about domestic abuse and sexual violence and develop the skills to support other young people. This three-day course provides a special insight into how Tender engages young people, using the arts to teach about relationships, boundaries, and the support available to young people. 
Young people who complete the course will have the opportunity to apply to take part in Tender’s Youth Facilitator programme. 
It is free to students at Queen Mary and will run over three days in the Student’s Union on the 30th, 31st Jan & 1st Feb 2023 between 10am - 5pm.

Queen Mary’s Professional Development team have developed Queen Mary Bystander, available in a new, more accessible e-learning format which you can now find on QMplus.  This e-learning will introduce you to the ideas and tools, then let you try out a number of scenarios where you can test them out and see where they might lead.
Building on the e-learning, there is also a workshop to explore some more complex scenarios and discuss them with small groups.  To book a place, first complete the e-learning and then search on the CPD booking system for course code PD230b (please note your place may be cancelled if you book before completing the e-learning). 

If you would like to suggest additional training options not listed here, please contact so that we can consider this or help put you in contact with suitable organisations who run training.
