Sexual violence prevention in schools

Our workshops are evidence-based and participatory. They’re designed to help young people explore these issues surrounding sexual violence – including sexting, pornography, and consent – in a safe and informative environment.

Workshops are broken down into age appropriate sessions for S1/2, S3/4, S5/6, 18–25yr olds, with sessions focusing on the following topics:

  • Gender gender stereotypes and inequality, and the harmful impact of these on how we view ourselves and others.
  • Consent – legal definition of consent, pressure, mutual enthusiasm, respect and addressing rape myths.
  • Sexualisation – the power of marketing and images to influence gendered behaviour and self-image, including the music and porn industries.
  • What is sexual violence? – explores sexual violence as that which is sexually violating, including sexual insults and sexual harassment.
  • Sexual violence: impacts and support – the impacts of sexual violence on survivors and how to get support or help others.
  • Social media – sexting, online safety, and the law.
  • How we can help prevent sexual violence? explore a safe bystander approach, what we can do to influence others’ behaviours and attitudes in a positive way, and harmful attitudes towards sexual violence such as ‘victim-blaming’.

All workshops have been designed to complement and contribute towards key aims identified in the Curriculum for Excellence, Getting It Right for Every Child and Equally Safe.
