Bitesize Sessions

The TDI Bitesize series of training sessions cover a set of topics and issues around sexual offending and sexual harm prevention. They build on the Explainer series of information sheets, offering coverage in more depth.

The sessions are pre-recorded videos, hosted by Matt, TDI’s Head of Research. Each lasts about an hour, and has an accompanying exercise to be done in the middle. Each is self-contained, so they can be taken individually or in any combination.

In terms of content, these sessions sit between the simplicity of the Explainers and our remotely-delivered and bespoke training courses. They are suitable for those working with, or interested in understanding, sexual offenders and sexual harm and who feel they needed a little more than our Explainers offer them.

Each course is £25, which gives you a token allowing access to the video ten times. There are discounts for buying multiple sessions from the set - 5% for three or more, 6% for six or more, 7% for nine or more, and if you buy eleven you get a twelfth free. If you'd like to have more than 10 accesses for a single session, please get in touch and we'll arrange that for you.
