LCG first to launch brand-new NCFE qualification, Understanding Workplace Violence and Harassment

Posted on Feb 20, 2019

Learning Curve Group (LCG) is proud to announce the launch of a brand-new qualification, Understanding Workplace Violence and Harassment. The new qualification is offered fully funded, and will enhance staff training on effective communication and reducing workplace conflict.

Violence and harassment can have huge consequences for employers, employees and the work environment. According to the Trades Union Congress (TUC), 29% of people report being bullied at work. This can have a huge impact on staff turnover, as 1 in 3 of those who report being bullied leave their job because of it.

This brand-new qualification focuses on key aspects of workplace violence and harassment, including how to contribute to a positive and safe working environment; the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion at work; and how to effectively deal with and prevent violence, aggression and bullying.

Glenn Shallcross, Director of Product Development at LCG, said: “This new qualification is a great way to educate your staff on the importance of a safe working environment at no cost to your business.

“Workplace harassment and bullying can have a devastating effect on staff turnover and business culture. Giving your staff the knowledge about how to reduce and effectively deal with violence or harassment at work will help promote a more positive working environment, which can improve job satisfaction and productivity.”

This new qualification is part of LCG’s flexible learning provision, meaning learners can complete this course online or via a paper-based workbook without having to attend classes or college.

Funding for this course is available from the government’s Adult Education Budget, which means your staff can complete this qualification at no cost.
