Canterbury BID is extremely proud to announce it will also be delivering FREE Zero Tolerance training, and that all licensed premises in Canterbury City Centre can apply.
Zero Tolerance is a completely FREE accreditation scheme designed for licensed venues in Canterbury City Centre to show they are trained to recognise and tackle sexual harassment and discrimination aimed at both customers and staff. The programme has also been recently revised to include broader elements of equality, diversity and inclusion and to respond to potential spiking incidents.
Zero Tolerance training has been funded through the Home Office Safer Street Fund for tackling Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) and will be delivered by Canterbury BID.
The next Zero Tolerance Training Session:
Tuesday 26 September 2023 | 10-12 noon OR 2-4pm | Fruitworks, Jewry Lane, Canterbury
Zero Tolerance is a completely FREE accreditation scheme designed for licensed venues in Canterbury City Centre, to show they are trained to recognise and tackle sexual harassment and discrimination aimed at both customers and staff.
Anyone frequenting a Zero Tolerance accredited venue can be reassured that staff are fully equipped with the guidelines and framework to keep them safe during their visit. The venues can also use this accreditation in their marketing, promotions and display materials.
Training sessions take place, in person, and in a city centre location. The sessions are also designed in a useful ‘train a trainer’ way. This means managers and owners of evening and night-time economy venues (or designated members of staff) can attend the training and then deliver it themselves to existing and new members of staff. If you are interested to book into a training session please contact us: email@example.com
Once trained and accredited, the venues will receive a Premises Guide brochure, which includes all information from the training plus printable Zero Tolerance and safety-related resources to display in their venues and staff rooms.
Training includes recognised initiatives such as Ask for Angela amongst others. To download a poster to display in your venue, click the button below.
