Developing a Consent Strategy for your Higher Education

Active Consent Toolkit
The Active* Consent Toolkit is a comprehensive guide to our wide range of learning materials, specially designed for third-level students and HEI staff across all sectors.

We created this cutting edge toolkit to meet the needs of our staff and student stakeholders in Higher Education Institution (HEI) who work to make positive changes promoting a culture of consent on their campuses, and erradicating sexual violence and harassment.

The toolkit draws on our extensive experience and expertise in research, consent education, and multi-disciplinary programming to present Active* Consent’s unique research base and vision for youth and staff engagement in a usable format accessible across multiple audiences.

It is a living document, and the toolkit will be updated on an ongoing basis just as college Action Plans evolve over time to reflect the needs of students and staff. 

Who is the Active* Consent toolkit for?

Our toolkit is a resource for continuing development for those who have engaged with our programming in the past, as well as newcomers to the Active* Consent Programme eager to engage with more of our materials. 

The Active* Consent Toolkit has been tailored to meet the needs of a variety of student and staff stakeholders, including:

  • University staff and administrators, encompassing academic and support staff as well as university management.

  • Student representatives working with their Students’ Unions, Societies and Sports Clubs, or on behalf of their academic disciplines.

  • The wider community including external stakeholders such as Rape Crisis Centres, advocacy groups for survivors of sexual violence and/or harassment, and post-primary education.

How can the Active* Consent toolkit support your institution? 

Our toolkit contains comprehensive information on how to implement your HEI’s Consent Framework Action Plan to tackle sexual violence and harassment, as well as how to bring sustainable and holistic consent education to your campus community.

The Active* Consent Toolkit gives you a comprehensive guide to:

  • The Consent Framework

  • Drafting your HEI’s Action Plan

  • Active* Consent’s 2021-2022 programming

  • Active* Consent’s latest research findings and unique vision for consent education

  • Our 3 stage consent education programme that can be delivered online, and which applies the findings of the 2020 Sexual Experiences Survey into significant opportunities for learning and cultural change.
