This is the second article relating to the embedding of Safe to Say into a BSc pre-registration course. The first article (McNay et al, 2012) outlined the format of Safe to Say and its rationale and indicated the need for evaluative research. This article reports on the first two student cohorts that were evaluated. Improvement in the selfperceived confidence and competence of participants was apparent at end of the training and on three-month follow-up as compared to pre-workshop assessment. Qualitative data supports and elucidates the quantitative findings and four clear themes are identified.
