Consent Lesson for School Pupils and Education Professionals.

In December 2017, the Department for Education published advice for governing bodies, headteachers, principals, senior leadership teams and designated safeguarding leads on sexual violence and sexual harassment between children in schools and colleges. Off the back of this, we have developed specialist workshops for schools in Essex. The most popular lesson we provide for all secondary school ages children and young people is our lesson on Consent. By providing these lessons we hope to inform and create change with our young people in our communities to prevent sexual violence and empower young people to have healthy relationships.
