Subject Experts to create training modules for Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE)
The purpose of the subject matter experts review is to provide children and young people with the knowledge to lead safe, healthy and happy lives. Some of the statutory content will need to be handled with particular care and sensitivity, for example on safeguarding and mental health, and the Authority is committed to supporting high quality teaching.
As part of this commitment, the Authority wants to provide teachers with a single point of access to online training modules that are aligned to the areas that teachers have told us, through research that they find most challenging. These training modules will be published alongside other support materials for schools such as the implementation guide, case studies and quality assured resources.
The topics below have been identified by teachers as areas they find most challenging to teach and therefore require training. There may be other areas that schools identify as a training need when we begin to test the modules with a wider pool of schools during development. The Contractor shall work with the Authority's digital content developer to design the following training modules for use in schools: -
a. Relationships Education (Primary)
Teaching inclusively about family units (e.g. single parents/LGBT)
b. Health Education (Primary)
c. Relationships Sex Education (Secondary)
Harmful content online such as pornography
d. Health Education (Secondary)
Drugs and alcohol risks
e. Curriculum planning for Relationships Education and Health Education at Primary
f. Curriculum planning for Relationships and Sex Education, and Health Education at Secondary
