WELLINGTON, Aug 10  - The agreement doubles NZUSA's staffing capacity in this part of their work, the organisation's national president Jonathan Gee says.

"There will be three full-time staff as well as staff working part-time around the country," he said. 

Gee said sexual violence and rape culture needed to be stamped out in tertiary education, and working with a government department to achieve this aim was a massive step.

"This is an historic milestone for students and it empowers the student movement."

Along with an agreed plan of education and training activities, part of the work programme with ACC included the launch of the In Our Own Words report, which detailed the findings of a survey undertaken last year around tertiary students' experiences of sexual violence and secondary school sexuality education.

The report will also include recommendations for both the secondary and tertiary education sector.

In Our Own Words is launched at Victoria University of Wellington on August 24.
