Community Values Education Programme (CVEP)

Welcome

We are the Community Valued Education Programme (CVEP), a central initiative dedicated to cultivating a secure and inclusive environment for both students and staff.

We deliver activities and resources to help promote Warwick Values. Our key approach is the Active Bystander method, which helps us collectively address challenging situations while keeping everyone safe and supported.

Explore Active Bystander resources.

Our Active Bystander Intervention course for UG and PGT students equips participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to help make safe, effective interventions in response to harmful behaviours. Find out more and register.

Recruiting Active Bystander course completers for a promotional video

We need you to help us get the word out about the Active Bystander course to more students! We're putting together a promotional video in June and we want to capture and share the impact that the course has had on you and what you have gained from it. Participants will get a gift voucher for their time. Register your interest today.

Register - Active Bystander course

UG and PGT students are invited to register for an Active Bystander intervention course, starting in Term 3. Complete this short form to secure a place. Previous participants said:

"The course was well-delivered and highly enjoyable."
"I was surprised by how much I learned over the course as a whole and am now significantly more likely to intervene in a developing situation. Also, I felt safe to ask questions during sessions without being judged."
"I loved being part of the group and the safe space that the session provided."
"I love that my facilitator was super respectful, always making sure everyone was okay, as well as their use of inclusive language to remind everyone that these situations can happen to anyone."

Be An Active Bystander

Active bystanders prevent harm in their communities. Develop knowledge, skills, and confidence to make safe, effective interventions in response to inappropriate behaviours.

Addressing Microaggressions

We are developing a new student-facing training session on understanding and addressing microaggressions. We recently held an interactive co-creation workshop with student volunteers to start planning the training.

Values-Based Teaching Activities Toolkit

Staff can use our toolkit of values-based teaching activities to facilitate opportunities for students to engage with community values.

Activities are to be facilitated by staff within the department. Activities can be adapted to suit the needs of your department, or take inspiration and create your own.

Respecting others starts with names

Explore the Say My Name project and help promote respectful interactions around names. Explore resources and activities aimed at staff and students.
