EVERY YOUNG PERSON HAS A HORROR STORY ABOUT THEIR SEX EDUCATION AND WE WANT TO CHANGE THAT.
Teaching 'The Talk' is a voluntary programme delivered for teachers by young people. We are in the first stages of designing training which aims to help teachers feel more comfortable and confident when teaching the all important 'Talk'. By 'The Talk' we mean Relationships and Sex Education which can be an intimidating session to lead for anyone but especially teachers. That's why we want to get young people to support teachers and change the dynamic for the better!
For the first time young people can have the power to teach teachers how they want their Relationships and Sex Education to be delivered.
The idea is simple. A teacher training session facilitated by young people for teachers to gain the skills to feel comfortable delivering Sex and Relationships Education. We are not offering the knowledge but rather young people’s expert advice on creating a safe space for both young people receiving the SRE and the teacher delivering it. Below are some ways we can make our idea a reality.
TEACHERS, WE NEED YOU
Teaching 'The Talk' would not work without teachers obviously! It is really important that we understand what teachers would want from these sessions. If you are teaching currently or if you have taught in the past and would have appreciated this training send us some ideas of what you would like/have liked to learn from young people. We look forward to hearing from you!
We are working with Sexplain
