Does your university currently deliver training on sexual violence to staff and/or students? 
 
If YES: 
Is this training mandatory? 
Who is invited to attend the training? 
How is the training delivered (e.g. online, in-person seminar, workshop, etc)? 
What is the completion rate of the training? 
 
    If NO: 
 
Has there been any training offered in the past, and if so, what? 
Is any training planned for the future? 
 
If it is not possible to provide the information that has been requested, due to the information exceeding the cost of the compliance limits that are identified in Section 12, please provide advice, under your Section 16 obligations, as to how I may be able to refine my request to meet the requirements of the Act.

Freedom of Information Enquiries,

Dear Ms Fouracre

I refer to your request for information (below).

The University has a small network of "First Responders" involving staff from across the University for whom training is mandatory. Their role is then to provide support and advice to staff and students who have been victims of gender based or sexual violence.

Initial training for the role is delivered in a full day, face to face workshop and supplemented by regular, shorter (non-compulsory) sessions on specific topics.

Further information is available online http://www.gcu.ac.uk/studentwellbeing/gbv/

We are unable to comment on whether such training is offered to students through our Students' Association as it is a separate legal entity and not subject to FOISA. https://www.gcustudents.co.uk/gbv

Please find attached a review notice setting out the steps you may take if you are not satisfied with the response provided to your request.

Yours sincerely
Jean Ash
