Premier League introduces mandatory sexual consent training for all players


Recommended Posts

These kinds of trainings are a standard part of life in the Military. I think it's well intended but it ends up being either low-effort or desperate and misinformed. The intent often comes off as sheilding the organisation from liability rather than educating those who could do harm and protecting those who could suffer from it. Hopefully they do extensive research and invest appropriately to make it genuinely effective training.

Totally agree.

 

Death by PowerPoint and an unenthusiastic instructor is all to standard these days in order to tick a box of apparent compliance.

 

It needs to be delivered correctly and in a way that resonates to the delegates.

 

I work in Construction H&S so understand the difficulty of trying to pitch training to a wide range of people from various disciplines and I spend a long time working with L&D coming up with training and accessing content.

A very good idea.

 

Most of these lads have led an 'Alpha' entitled existence coming through acadamies, and need to realise that the huge amount of female attention they get requires them to be very aware of this issue.

 

As well as footballers treating women badly, there will be young lasses looking to make a name for themselves , players may be set up etc so it will be in their own interests to be totally confident on consent, respect and safe behaviour.

Good post. I think famous rich young men are often the hunted rather than the hunters.

Good point, but I doubt that is how these lessons will be written.

Prefer your footballers to be a bit on the rapey side, yeah?

 

I'd like to think he's saying it's a sad thing for society that something like this is actuslly necessary. 

 

Sadly it is.

surely this is nothing to do with football or anything around that, its just how your brought up in life. if you need 'lessons' to stop you feeling up women improperly then there's something wrong.
