Event description
If only sexual consent was as easy as saying yes or no. Unfortunately the reality for many young people is not nearly as clear!

About this Event

This half day course is part of our multi-agency training programme aimed at any staff, volunteers and carers working with or supporting young people.

Training is FREE to all those working in Nottingham City and Southern Boroughs (Broxtowe, Gedling and Rushcliffe).

Training aims:

This course will explore ways of working with young people to ensure that they are really clear about gaining or refusing sexual consent and how it might be done in a sex positive way, in order to keep young people safe.

By the end of this course participants will:

  • Have an understanding of the law in relation to consensual sex and rape.
  • Have explored ways to create a safe environment to discuss social and cultural norms, values and attitudes in relation to rape and sexual assault.
  • Have had an opportunity to view a variety of current resources.
  • Be aware of support services and how to signpost.

Whilst statistics vary, we do know that the majority of communication between people of all ages is non-verbal. In addition, the majority of young people rarely plan first sex, a significant proportion are drunk or have used substances which may impact upon their ability to read a situation and for many, their reality is that sex is spontaneous and opportunistic. Discussing and being clear about sexual consent and what they are consenting to may not be at the top of their list.
