Research shows that young people want to talk with their about sexual health. Many professionals are unsure of where to start or may feel uncomfortable about having these conversations, but avoiding the subject will not stop young people from having sex or keep them safe.

Young people are exposed to images and stories about sex through the media and online that can be confusing and confronting. They may also talk with their friends or look online for answers to their questions, but the information they take away will not always be accurate, positive or age appropriate.

Research shows that talking to young people about sex does not encourage them to experiment sexually. It also shows that young people who receive comprehensive sexuality education have a lower risk of experiencing unplanned pregnancy and are more likely to delay their first sexual experience.

This one day training course will build professionals’ skill levels around contraception information, the law and guidance, and addressing their own values and attitudes.

It will help to build the confidence of staff who talk to young people about sexual health, sexuality and sex and relationships. It is suitable for anyone working with young people who is relatively new to this area of work.
