Consent Matters is an online training module and quiz that every single member of our community - staff and students - will complete. When training is ready for completion, staff and students will be notified by email.
Some people find it difficult to talk about sex openly, and not everyone feels comfortable being direct, assertive or explicit. Consent Matters ensures that all students and staff have a shared understanding of consent.
This training is one part of our program to reduce unwanted sexual behaviour and encourage healthy relationships. It will:
- Facilitate an open conversation and shared definition of sexual consent.
- Equip you with the skills and words to apply to real-life situations.
- Help you identify unacceptable situations.
- Give you skills to be an active bystander.
About the training
There will be four modules about consent, relationships, being a bystander and support to read through. Then you'll be prompted to take the quiz. Training can be undertaken in one go (approximately one hour), or over a longer period. But it won't be recognised as complete until you take part in the entire training and receive 100% in the quiz.
You can take the quiz as many times as you need to reach a 100% pass mark. Student results will be automatically recorded and monitored in CASS, the student administration database, administered by the UTS Information Technology Division. Staff results will be recorded in NEO and monitored by HRU and local management.
