The Training You Deserve
Often just some simple training for Teachers about Human Sexuality will improve skills, understanding and confidence in managing Sexuality topics.
I am committed to empowering this generation of children with information that will be essential for safe and positive relationship experiences across their lifespan - they way to achieve this is via parents and teachers.
The reasons we need to begin Sexuality and Respectful Relationship discussions at a very early age are covered in the training.
Confidence And The Right Skills
This information will support and empower you to guide children through this important part of their development.
You will be provided with a greater appreciation of why young people deserve to have the knowledge and skills required to negotiate and experience fulfilling, satisfying, and safe partnerships and sexual experiences in their lifetime.
It is so important that as carers we acknowledge that every individual will have sexual experiences in their life journey.
3 Common themes of Teachers and Health Professionals
1. Teachers have usually had no undergraduate training in Sexual Health
The majority of Teachers have never had any specific Sexual Health training. Even a short 90 minute session about Human Sexuality throughout the lifespan will encourage you to change the way you think about broaching the subject and can build on knowledge you already have.

2. In teachers' day to day work they are expected to manage Sexual Health issues and teach it with out being provided with the adequate knowledge, skills, or confidence to do so
Even a short introductory session will give you an insight and greater understanding of Human Sexuality along with some very simple tips and tricks to incorporate it into your every day teaching as well as some resources that already exist that you might consider using in your everyday work.
3. Teachers often acknowledge that they should be addressing Sexual Health in more detail with the students but there is never enough time
It is easier then you think to incorporate Sexuality Education into regular class activities.
An example: To incorporate sexuality into Prep Maths class - rather than counting the different colours of cars that go by for your graph, why not count the different eye colours in the classroom, do a graph of eye colour. Discussion can lead to how different eye colour occurs.
"...counting different eye colour for our maths graph rather than the colour of cars passing by, is such a simple way to incorporate it (Human Sexuality) into the classroom, thanks for the tip..."
