Sexual harassment is any unwelcome behaviour of a sexual nature and can range from suggestive sexual comments or displays of erotic or sexually graphic material, to stalking or assault. It is not confined to a particular gender or sexuality.

TAFE SA has student counsellors and student welfare and career advisors available on all campuses who can help with:

  • information about the types of behaviour that constitute sexual harassment
  • the roles and responsibilities of lecturers
  • options and procedures for dealing with a complaint.

Students are also able to make a complaint to the appropriate legislative body, such as the Equal Opportunity Commission or the police. Please note that assault and stalking are criminal offences and can be prosecuted by the police.
