New consent and harassment training modules available for staff

Reading time: < 1 minute
The University is offering two new training courses to promote positive behaviours around sexual consent and all forms of harassment.

Consent Matters and Tackling Harassment have been created by Epigeum at Oxford University and are free for all staff and students at the University.

The Consent Matters course covers sexual consent, relationships and bystander intervention training. It will discuss what informed sexual consent looks like, how all parties can respect and agree clear boundaries and ensure there is consent at all times.  It also includes support and services you can access.

Tackling Harassment addresses all forms of harassment and discrimination. The course examines harassment and hate, and how members of the University community can recognise problematic situations and intervene safely.

Each course takes approximately an hour to complete and is broken down into three, 20-minute modules.

The University is committed to creating a safe environment for our community. A range of resources is available to help foster a healthy environment around relationships.
