Overview

Sexuality and relationships education (SRE) can be a confronting and challenging subject area for teachers. It is a critical subject, as students are exposed to messages about sexuality on a daily basis and long before they enter secondary school! It is important that all students receive correct information, including the positive aspects, in a developmentally‐appropriate way. Furthermore, students with gender or sexual diversity should feel supported by their school.

This unit aims to increase your confidence and capacity as an SRE educator. You will learn lots of practical teaching strategies that you could utilise in a variety of subject areas.

Topics include:

  • creating a safe environment
  • links to the curriculum
  • teaching controversial issues
  • addressing diversity
  • planning and implementing SRE
  • working with parents
  • enhancing relationships in the classroom, and
  • sexual health agencies that support teachers.
