The Irish Times reports “More than half of young people are “confused” about sexual consent and more than a quarter are getting their information on it online, including by watching pornography”

“Over 58 per cent stated that many of the young people they work with do not understand what the term consent means as well as some of the language used in relation to consent,”

Consent is crucial to a person’s wellbeing so we have included a two part chapter covering the issue in our Wellbeing 3 Learner’s Record.

We look at the definition of consent and consent in action; non-consent; legal ages for consent; definition of rape; victim blaming and recovery.

Take a look at our Consent content and our Wellbeing 3 resources here.
