Course description

Over the course of this half day workshop you will learn about the law in relation to sexual consent. We will break down the definition and use case studies to explore what having the freedom and capacity to consent means. We will look at the rights and responsibilities of individuals engaging in sexual activity and ways in which you can discuss these issues with children and young people by looking at practical tools and resources.

Important note: It is essential that you have undertaken the Safeguarding Children elearning,Introduction Child Sexual Abuse – Modules 1 and 2 and Child Sexual Abuse - Introduction to Child Sexual Exploitation eLearning prior to coming on this course (see additional information under full details), or you may be turned away.
