Our training gives teachers and practitioners the skills to deliver effective SRE by:

  • demonstrating practical skills through a range of resources and approaches that can be used in the classroom
  • encouraging practice-sharing through an interactive approach
  • prioritising inclusion and ensuring SRE meets the needs of all children and young people
  • empowering you to have the confidence to respond to difficult questions and emerging challenges
  • embedding the core skills and competencies for effective teaching on any topic
