Please i need your help on this issue.

We are having problems with profanity and bullying using Teams.

We would like to stop students from creating any Teams groups and channels.

How do we set it up?

    What you need to do is create a group that is allowed to create M365 groups and block all other users from creating those groups.
    As for the profanity there's a similar question in https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams/how-to-block-the-use-of-profanity-and-obscene-language-in-teams/m-p/1239487 where you will find how to deal with that.

    I would also recommend to create a student policy in teams admin center to block the creation of channels

    Hope this helps you out.

    The response by @Davy Aerts is correct. You will need the Global Admin right of the Teams platform to set the Teams policies.
