FREE Tier 1 Sexual Health Awareness Training

We currently offer FREE Tier 1 Sexual Health Awareness training for any staff or volunteers who work with young and/or vulnerable people. The training lasts around 1-1.5hrs and topics include: equality & diversity, sex and the law, consent, keeping safe (sexting - safeguarding), contraception and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) as well as the services and support available from the Sexual Health Service.

 

FREE Sexual Health & Wellbeing Sessions

Secondary Schools are invited to participate in the FREE ‘Sexual Health and Wellbeing’ sessions which are run by the IW NHS Sexual Health Team and are aimed at Year 10, although  can easily be adapted for Years 9&11. Two sessions of 30-40 minutes are delivered. Ideally, these sessions are held after staff have completed the Tier 1 training (as above).

 

The Sexual Health training sessions are specifically designed with young people in mind and the session (1) plan includes equality & diversity, delay, sex & the law, consent, keeping safe (sexting – safeguarding), contraception and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) as well as the services and support available from the Sexual Health Service.

 

Students are invited to post questions into a locked question box which is left at the school for one week and is for any student to ask any question related to sexual health, anonymously and in confidence. This enables the Sexual Health Team to see if there are recurring themes/topics that need to be addressed at the follow up session (2) around a week later where all student questions are answered.
