The whistleblowing charity Public Concern at Work states that, “Effective whistleblowing arrangements are a key part of good governance. A healthy and open culture is one where people are encouraged to speak out, confident that they can do so without adverse repercussions, confident that they will be listened to, and confident that appropriate action will be taken. This is to the benefit of organisations, individuals and society as a whole.” This Whistleblowing course will enable the learner to understand what whistleblowing is, how to blow the whistle and what protections there are for those who do so.
This Whistleblowing e-learning course provides awareness education. Face-to-face training, coaching or supervision would be needed in addition in order to complete the all-round skills and knowledge to be able to carry this forward practically in your organisation.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Describe the protection provided for whistleblow
- Understand what is not whistleblowing.
- Make a whistleblowing disclosure
- Understand the position regarding whistleblower confidentiality
- Acknowledge what happens after the whistle has been blown
