Bullying in schools is an endemic concern for the whole school community that has no ‘quick fix’ solution. Instead, there are evidence-based strategies that educators can use to help reduce the prevalence of bullying and to intervene when bullying behaviours occur. This course will support educators in addressing all forms of bullying in their schools by creating, communicating, implementing and evaluating an effective bullying prevention policy.

This module is an opportunity to reflect on how your school currently manages bullying behaviour and to plan how you can contribute to greater positive outcomes. As a classroom teacher or school leader, you will compare and contrast your approach with the latest recommendations made by researchers who have studied the impact of prevailing attitudes, popular strategies and common challenges.
