Why is learning about how to speak to young people about sex and consent more important now than ever?
Times are rapidly changing and our conversations about these crucial issues must change too. This course will focus less on the physical aspects of sex education and more about the complex emotions and the social expectations placed on young people that make this issue more compelling than ever. We want young people to understand how to have loving respectful relationships - both with themselves and with others. This course is focused on how best to do that.
Given the subject matter, this is best suited to teachers working with secondary aged students, and those in a position to have these kinds of conversations - perhaps those with pastoral roles.
