About the job
Consent.Ed is a student led initiative that aims to prevent sexual violence and improve the safety of our campus by providing a space to learn about consent and discuss how we can work together to support one another and create an inclusive campus.
As a Consent.Ed facilitator you will be working with one other facilitator to lead 90 minute Consent.Ed sessions to approximately 30 students. Your role is not to train students but to facilitate a conversation: to share some information, explore issues around consent, provide an opportunity to discuss how we can look out for one another and create an inclusive campus, and signpost students to the support available at LSE.
We will provide you with comprehensive training on issues around consent and how to facilitate sessions, with many opportunities to practice these workshop-leading skills. We recognise that this is sensitive content and that this role could be emotionally challenging; we are here to support you through this, and will provide check-in sessions and paid-time to decompress.
This role will be responsible for delivery of our Consent.ed programme to our student community of circa 2k.
Who are we looking for?
A highly motivated individual with excellent interpersonal, listening and communication skills. A team player who is eager to learn and willing to develop effective presentation, public speaking, and facilitation skills. You must have an understanding and commitment to equality, diversity of inclusion, coupled with a strong passion and motivation for wanting to make a difference.
