In 2021, Ofsted acknowledged ‘how prevalent sexual harassment and online sexual abuse are for children and young people.’ They’re not wrong. Currently, over a third of female students at mixed-sex secondary schools will experience some form of sexual harassment at school. Hovering over this landscape of toxic abuse lies the stratospheric rise of misogynist influencers such as Andrew Tate, whose flashy displays of wealth, power and aggression seduce young boys who seek to emulate him.

This course will improve your understanding of Andrew Tate and other online misogynist groups while providing you with a practical toolkit to respond effectively to the sexism and misogyny when it is raised. The course will also help you to better understand the root causes of misogyny and sexism in adolescent boys and give you the tools to combat it when it occurs.

You will have the opportunity to reflect, share experience, understand best practice while participating in course activities in a safe space and open forum.
