Active Bystander training

Active Bystander training

We want to promote an inclusive campus community. That’s why all our students are expected to take online training about dealing with harassment.

The Active Bystander course will teach you:

  • how to recognise harassment and hate incidents,
  • appropriate strategies for intervening, and
  • how you can make a positive impact on your University community from the start.

Start the course

The course you need to complete is called Active Bystander. It is part of the Tackling Harassment programme on an e-learning website called Epigeum.

To access the course, you need to:

  • register with Epigeum using your Hallam email address,
  • enter the token c8277f40,

Please note: If you have to leave the course part way through your progress will not be saved. When you next log in, use the navigation options to return to the last screen you visited to continue your progress.

For any other problems, visit the help page for the Epigeum platform or contact the Epigeum support team.

The course works best in Chrome, Firefox or Edge.
