Do you know how to recognise bullying and harassment? Would you know if you were displaying these behaviours? And what would you do if you saw someone else behaving that way? 

These are questions employers will expect you to answer.

This online module from ScreenSkills is designed to help you recognise and address harassment and bullying behaviours in yourself and others.

It builds on the principles and zero tolerance guidelines developed with organisations across film, television and games industries by the BFI and BAFTA. 

We recommend completing this 30-minute module in one sitting. However, if you are not able to do this, your progress will be saved, and when you come back to finish the module you will be taken to the last screen you viewed.
