Student Commission on Sexual Violence
Established in 2021, the Student Commission on Sexual Violence is a partnership of 3 London colleges and Leaders Unlocked. This student-led project gives young people a platform to speak out. Following national revelations that sexual violence is commonplace in education settings, through exploring sexual violence in schools, colleges and the wider community, the Student Commission is giving young people a voice and empowering them to take action.
After consultation with FE colleges, Leaders Unlocked launched the Student Commission on Sexual Violence in partnership with BSix Sixth Form College, Leyton Sixth Form College and New City College.
Working with the participating colleges, we recruit 17 passionate students to lead the Commission. Throughout the project, the Commissioners are supported by Leaders Unlocked to build skills in research, public speaking and engaging other young people. They also produce a short animation or film and workshop that reaches hundreds of students. The Commission work with their own colleges and national stakeholders to develop recommendations for action to tackle sexual violence.
