Safe from bullying in further education colleges

This guidance outlines what bullying might take place in FE colleges, the steps that can be taken to prevent bullying happening in the first place and to respond effectively when bullying does occur. 

Written specifically for further education settings, this guide contains detailed information on addressing different forms of bullying in colleges. It also details steps that can be taken to prevent bullying, and how to respond to it.

It also includes case study examples of good practice and wide-ranging signposting for further support and information.

This guide was initially published in 2009, but all the content is still relevant and useful for those working in the FE sector today.
