Sexuality Education Professional Development
This five-hour workshop (can be broken into two sessions) supports primary schools looking to develop their own whole school sexuality program. Open to teachers, welfare staff and administrators, the workshop provides age-appropriate information over each AusVELS level and exceeds the curriculum requirements.
The program covers:
Safe spaces and inclusive language
Naming genitals and reproductive organs
Identifying and maintaining safe relationships (family, friends, trusted adults. Years 5 & 6 will begin to discuss safe romantic relationships)
Gender identity and stereotypes
Identifying and managing strong emotions
Providing same-sex attracted and gender-diverse (SSAGD) inclusive sexuality education
Managing sexual abuse disclosures
Identifying developmentally inappropriate sexual behaviours
This is an interactive workshop where staff will begin to develop their own lesson plans and resources to enable them to run sexuality education classes with their students.
