Modules

There are three key courses within Safe & Respectful Communities:

CONSENT MATTERS

Welcome to our new edition of Consent Matters an online course. Sexual health is important for everyone and we want to equip you with the information and support you need to explore sexuality and relationships in a health, respectful and safe way.  The Consent Matters course will provide you with an up-to-date approach on key concepts around sexual consent, communication and relationships and bystander intervention. The modules contain a wide range of interactive multimedia activities, including live polls, animations and quizzes. Sexual relationships might be a topic you’re not used to discussing, but it is essential that you know how to say sexually healthy and safe whether you’re in a relationship or not.

This course will cover the following topics in each Module:

  • Module 1: Thinking about consent
  • Module 2: Communication skills and relationships
  • Module 3: Looking out for others

STAYING SAFE (part of Being Well, Living Well)

Developed in collaboration with mental health experts, higher education professionals, and university students and staff, the Staying Safe module forms part of Being Well, Living Well.

Modules in this strand present practical, non-judgemental advice to help you make healthy and informed decisions about alcohol and drug use; to deal with relationship issues, including respect and resolving conflicts, and more.

TACKLING HARASSMENT

By the end of this module you'll be able to define and recognise situations which constitute harassment, hate incidents and hate crime. You will also learn skills to assess situations and support others who have experienced harassment or hate.
