Webinar Duration: 1 hour 18 minutes (approx.)
This webinar will provide headteachers, governors, RSHE curriculum and subject leaders, teachers and practitioners with practical advice on teaching the principles of healthy relationships and consent to post-16 students to guide positive life choices now and in the future.
A DfE research brief found that young people aged 16 -19 who had engaged in sex without precautions or contraception or who had experienced an STI were more likely to experience higher levels of psychological distress. This adds to the body of evidence that comprehensive RSE in schools (including education post-16) can reduce instances of risky behaviour, such as unprotected sex, and its direct consequences, including unwanted pregnancies, sexually transmitted infections and psychological distress.
In this webinar, John Rees, RSHE subject matter expert with over 25 years’ educational leadership experience, explains how schools can explore the sensitive subjects of relationships and consent, using scenarios appropriate for a post-16 audience, to inform healthy decision-making for the sake of students’ own health, safety and wellbeing and that of others.
