Delivery of Relationships & Sexuality Education

  1. 1. Who is best suited to deliver Relationships and Sexuality Education?
  2. 2. RELATIONSHIPS AND SEXUALITY EDUCATION 11 essentials when choosing facilitators to deliver RSE
  3. 3. 1. Facilitators know the subject they are teaching. Teaching comes naturally when the chosen specialised area of training is underpinned by passion and dedication. Similarly, a successful facilitator of relationships and sexuality education understands the central concepts, tools of inquiry, and structures of the discipline of relationships, sexuality and sexual health. Being comfortable and positive about this topic ensures a learning environment is created that makes relationships and sexuality education meaningful for learners.
  4. 4. 2. Facilitators know how teens grow. Teens develop at different rates, particularly with the interplay of hormones, physiological and neurological growth patterns. Adolescent learners also have broad ranges of ability to grasp relationships and sexuality concepts. A successful sexuality educator can provide instruction that supports differing social and personal development. Sexual diversity is also something that emerges during this time of their life. Understanding and knowing how to support sexually diverse students is critical.
  5. 5. 3. Facilitators understand that learners learn differently. All learners differ in their approaches to learning and experience barriers that impede learning. This has never been a truer statement than in sexual development. Within any given class you will have students with varying sexual awareness. Some students may be not interested in relationships and sexuality, and some may have been watching pornography for a number of years. Some may have been abused, some may be in platonic relationships, and others may have already embraced sexual relationships. Facilitators need to be flexible to adapt instruction to meet the diverse needs of learners and bring practical support without judgement.
  6. 6. 4. Facilitators know how to communicate well. Clear communication is critical when delivering relationships and sexuality education. Different words mean different things to students. What may cause offence to one student may be completely normal for another.
  7. 7. Using anatomical terms and best practice approaches underpins success in this subject. It’s also vitally important to ensure that language used creates an environment of tolerance and acceptance that contributes to students feeling safe and supported. The facilitator needs to use effective verbal and nonverbal communication techniques and incorporate a variety of instructional strategies, including the use of media & technology. Clear and effective communication will encourage development of critical thinking, active inquiry, problem solving, and skills for life. 5. Facilitators use correct terms.
  8. 8. 6. Facilitators know how to manage the size of their learning group. Variation of group sizes is something most educators and youth workers are familiar with. When transferring this skill to deliver sexuality education in class or small group sizes, facilitators will need to use individual and group motivation to create a learning environment that encourages positive behaviour, social interaction, active engagement and self-awareness.
  9. 9. 7. Facilitators are comfortable in their own skin. Every person who delivers relationships and sexuality education will be challenged in his or her own understanding of sexuality, relationships and sexual health. It is important that the facilitator has reached a place in their self- awareness where personal understanding of ‘whole-person centred sexuality’ allows for holistic instruction in this area of learning. It’s also important for facilitators to have had opportunity to work through personal issues such as abuse. It may be the case that significant life events (such as sexual trauma or painful memories) and / or embedded beliefs may affect the level of personal comfort of facilitators when discussing sexuality, relationships and sexual health. It is important to recognise this and either decline the offer to deliver Relationships and Sexuality Education or be willing to challenge and adapt personal reactions.
  10. 10. Teens are curious and whilst delivering relationships and sexuality classes, a facilitator will need to be aware that young people discuss topics relative to their personal circumstances. Facilitators may be asked personal questions and it is best to be prepared! It is important for facilitators to understand what is and is not suitable to share; and be comfortable with reframing the conversation to protect themselves and to provide safe learning for all students. 8. Facilitators understand and use appropriate sharing.
  11. 11. Monitoring learner progress in relationships and sexuality education may be quite different to regular subjects. It’s important to observe body language, verbal language, attitudes, and withdrawn or aggressive behaviour, as these may all be indicators that the student is struggling with this topic. It’s important that formal and informal assessment strategies are used to evaluate and ensure the continuous social, emotional and personal development of the learner. Very few sexuality educators are equipped to deal with the complexities of concerning abusive behaviour exhibited by students, compulsive sexual behaviour such as regular viewing of pornography, or trauma related to sexual coercion or abuse. Access to internal and external referral services is essential to ensure student wellbeing for any who need further support. 9. Facilitators know how to monitor learner progress.
  12. 12. 10. Facilitators are able to evaluate themselves. Self-reflection for facilitators is essential. Continually evaluating the effects of his or her personal values, choices and actions on learners, parents and the broader school community helps to bring a balanced and safe approach to relationships and sexuality education. An ethical approach grounded in integrity and fairness offers students a great example to model behaviour.
  13. 13. 11. Facilitators are connected with other sexual health professionals. Ongoing professional development in relationships and sexuality education and contact with other school colleagues and support services in the larger community are vital to the success of a sexuality educator. It’s important for facilitators to actively seek out these opportunities to grow professionally and support learner sexual health and relationship wellbeing.
