When you are planning how to have sexuality education taught in your schools every year, you want a clear and simple solution...

…and we want to make teaching sexuality education easier for schools. What a perfect match!

 

Virtual Classroom makes this process better for schools by being:

And what could be better than simple, affordable lessons that are being taught for you, and you can choose whenever and wherever you want to have these lessons?!

This whole school approach is the ready to go package that your school never knew it needed!

WHAT DO WE MEAN WHEN WE SAY VIRTUAL CLASSROOM HAS A WHOLE SCHOOL APPROACH TO EDUCATION?

It means that we want everyone to be involved in a child's sexuality education and taking care of their wellbeing. Our whole school approach builds not only on building on teacher comfort and confidence, but also on parent involvement and acceptability.

How do we do this: 

  • Staff & class teachers are provided with efficient, engaging, yet simple, training and ongoing support (i.e. private teacher only facebook group) to ask questions and get any help as needed
  • Resources on how to inform parents about the program and how to get parents actively involved in supporting their child's sexuality education
  • Homework activity sheets are included so that parents/carers can engage in the content their children are learning
  • The virtual classroom package includes a parent session, where they can directly ask questions learn how to support their children in what they are learning
  • PLUS free written resources are included for  teachers and parents
 
LOOK HOW EASY IT IS TO HAVE AN EXPERT IN YOUR CLASS.
YOU JUST HAVE TO PRESS PLAY
!

Having external providers come in all the time isn't SUSTAINABLE!

Instead, utilise the knowledge and experience of a sexuality education expert and have an expert helping you teach the content whenever you want it!

This means that you can become an expert at teaching these lessons too! 

Virtual Classroom is designed to be capacity building, where teachers become confident to address this topic year round, when the need arises not just in specific session. This means your school won't be reliant on external providers, your teachers will be ready to teach these topics whenever it suits them!

And after a year of  COVID lockdowns, we know that everyone could use some support in teaching this content. This accurate comprehensive age appropriate content can be delivered regardless of COVID restrictions of visitors to school so students will never miss out again!

You Aren’t Looking For A Quick Fix Solution That Will Work just for 1 Year...

You Want a Model Of Sexuality Education That is Sustainable for Years To Come!

HERE IS A TASTE OF THE SEXUALITY EDUCATION YOUR STUDENTS COULD BE RECEVING:

A program with a whole school approach, even parents are involved! 

Research based content delivered by experts and teachers are trained so that they too can become experts 

Accessible in any classroom. All you need is: Internet and to be English speaking.

Available at the click of a button. Watch lessons whenever you want! 

And it's not affected by COVID-19 lockdowns

You would have inclusive and comprehensive sexuality education in your classroom any time you want it!

Providing comprehensive sexuality education can be hard.

Especially if you've never had any training on how to deliver it!

Your options can be limited. You can either have an external provider come in and deliver the lessons. Or you could have your staff design and deliver the lessons themselves. 

Those options present their own challenges.

Relying on an external provider can see you having to deal with the demand of other schools trying to book the same providers as you. 

You then have to plan your schedule to be able to fit these lessons into each classes' timetable.

And there are the complex, time consuming booking processes.

Not to mention the expensive prices!

To avoid these issues, you may choose to have your staff deliver these lessons themselves. 

But not all staff members may feel comfortable or confident teaching this material, especially if they have never taught this content before or had some training in how it should be delivered.

Of course there are curriculum guides to help teachers figure out what is age appropriate but how are they to know what specific information is appropriate at what age? 

How are they to know how to answer difficult questions that come up in the lessons or months down the line? 

Teachers already have so much on their plate. 

And if you are like most schools, you don't want to have to be reliant on external providers for your students' sexuality education. 


The reality is:

Whether you teach the content yourself or you get in an external provider...

 

THERE ARE SO MANY BARRIERS IN PROVIDING SEXUALITY, RESPECTFUL RELATIONSHIPS AND CONSENT EDUCATION IN SCHOOLS!

 

Whether it is the lack of teacher familiarity with the curriculum and content, reliance and high cost of external providers, the uncertainty of the right language to use, the need to cover so many different topics or uncertainty about parent support...

...you don't want this to prevent  your students from getting adequate human sexuality, consent  and respectful relationships  education, do you?

Of course not! 

So then why wouldn't you use something that encompasses ALL the things you are looking for: expert led content, lessons that are ready to go, something that is capacity building for teachers and an affordable and sustainable  price?

It’s time to upskill yourself (and other  teachers) on how to navigate discussions around sexuality, respectful relationships and consent!
Just hear how the first version of Talking The Talk's Virtual Classroom went in schools in 2020:

"It was like you had come into the classroom to teach us"

Year 3&4 Teachers, Nov 2020

On the Live Teacher Zoom Webinar:
"Perfect! Interesting and along with the online training, year 3 &4  teachers felt ready to deliver the lessons and junior school staff now feel great about teaching too..."

On the Virtual Classroom Lessons: 
"Your manner and language was friendly, informative and engaging. It was like you had come into the classroom to teach us..."

"...Overall, we feel that you’ve put together a very professional, useful and extremely valuable package..."

 

Primary School Assistant Principal 22/10/2020

"...It’s so great that families are asking when the students are having their Sexuality education sessions - after they attend your parent session they value the fact that we are all working together for the child’s wellbeing...We have some teachers who are very excited to have the opportunity to deliver the content..."

Read some more stories of how Virtual Classroom was integrated into classrooms across Victoria 

"FOCUS ON CAPACITY BUILDING"


Primary School Principal 22/10/2020

"...This model provides excellent partnership with families, there is a clear sense that there is a family role and teacher role and we are working together...

The Virtual classroom fits with our philosophy of embedding real life across the curriculum, the focus on capacity building for our teachers, crosses other areas of our curriculum, it also aligns with the respectful relationships curriculum and the way we view things at our school...

I loved the Teacher Training Module 'This is not about you' (Facts v Values), that really helps with teacher confidence...

Excellent that parents have access to ongoing resources if they can't make it to the live (via zoom)  presentation."

 

“Helpful and informative” Teacher training modules

Primary School Teacher 27th Oct 2020

"...I completed the Sexuality Ed PD last week (and the modules just now) and I just wanted to reach out and let you know how helpful and informative I found them. I really appreciate how you were able to simplify a topic which I have at times found a bit overwhelming or felt unsure of where to begin. The resources are so straightforward and supportive so thank you..."

Here is an example video of Vanessa Presenting the 5/6 Sexuality Education content

Did you notice the inclusive language used?

Can you picture this being presented into your classroom?
