More information about the Charter
In between March and October 2020, EmilyTest conducted a series of focus groups and interviews with students and graduates across Scotland and the United Kingdom (UK) to create the EmilyTest GBV Charter. The research report was released in September 2021 following peer review.
Consultation and co-creation
Following on from the research with hundreds of student and graduate victims/survivors and to create the final Charter, EmilyTest ran two rounds of ‘co-creation’ sessions during October-November 2020 and March 2021 with further education (FE) and higher education (HE) staff, GBV and Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) professionals, and charity sector staff across Scotland and the UK.
EmilyTest piloted the GBV Charter for 6 months at the University of St Andrews, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow Clyde College and South Lanarkshire College. In December 2021, we will be releasing Impact and Evaluation research on the pilot.
