Announcing a new short course in stalking awareness



The Alice Ruggles Trust, in collaboration with St Mary’s University, London, has launched a new CPD-accredited 3-hour training course in Stalking, Coercive Control and Domestic Abuse as part of its suite of SAfEE courses. It is relevant to a broad range of professionals working with young people who wish to gain knowledge of this vital area.

Learners will hear about what stalking is and how it can impact lives by listening to Alice’s story. The session will also cover the vital steps to follow to help those who are being stalked. After the course, participants will have access to a number of useful resources and links to professional support services. This CPD course is delivered online.

The first of these new SAfEE short courses will run on Tuesday 19th July and Thursday 22nd September, from 4pm to 7pm.

Register here to learn how to identify signs of stalking, coercive control and relationship abuse.

SAfEE also provides two other courses aimed at professionals and aspiring professionals working with young people, which lead to Ofqual-registered qualifications. These have been created in conjunction with St Mary’s University in Twickenham, London, and Transcend Awards.

SAfEE Ambassador is a one-day course uniquely designed for those working with young people in a variety of education environments. This includes youth workers, coaches, mentors, student services, wellbeing advisors and private training providers as well as teachers operating in active leisure environments, youth development settings, schools, colleges and universities. The qualification aims to develop learners’ stalking awareness and their understanding of the crucial initial steps to follow if someone is subjected to stalking, so that they can support good practice and safety when working with young people.

SAfEE Campaigner is a two-day course aimed at people who hope to secure positions working with young people, within support services, or in campaigning and charity work around stalking, sexual violence and domestic abuse prevention. In addition to gaining knowledge about how to recognise stalking behaviours and what to do to help someone who is being stalked, those on this course will learn to apply this knowledge to the research, planning, design and execution of their own stalking awareness campaigns.
