20 Tavistock Square 
London
United Kingdom
WC1H 9HQ

​Overview

This workshop will consider key findings from the evaluation of the case management process for sexual misconduct which has been introduced at Keele University following a successful bid for funding from HEFCE. It will look in particular at the role of the case manager, the interface of the case manager role and the Sexual Violence Liaison Officer (SVLO) role and the management of sexual misconduct cases in light of the Universities UK/Pinsent Masons guidance: How to handle alleged student misconduct which may also constitute a criminal offence. It will highlight what worked well, gaps and recommendations to enhance the current process. 

This workshop will be useful for all university staff who have responsibility for or play a part in the management of sexual misconduct within the university, whether or not that sexual misconduct has been reported to the police.
