Webinar: Relationships, Sexuality & Gender for the classroom

A presentation and discussion on how to confidently deliver RSE in the classroom

Relationships, sexuality and gender are huge life issues affecting all of us, from childhood and throughout adulthood. Yet, education is so lacking in this vital area. In fact, many teachers have never had formal RSE themselves, before endeavouring to teach the subject with an awareness of diversity and good practice within the field.

RSE lead practitioner and international expert, Jenni Gates, and chartered teacher, psychologist and academic, Scott Buckler, are here to help! By watching this webinar, you will go away with confidence in safely teaching and managing all matters of RSE within the classroom.

This webinar covered:

  • How to lead inclusive, age-appropriate lessons in primary and secondary schools.
  • Critically evaluate the 2020 Relationship and Sex Education policy.
  • Celebrate the individual identity of learners.
  • Go beyond the statutory requirements in offering informed, responsible teaching.
  • Ultimately, provide you with the confidence to openly discuss a range of RSE topics.
