Young People, Sexual Health and Sexuality Training Course (Level 3)

Course Overview

Sexuality, sexual exploration and experiences are an important part of the natural development process and every young person develops at different stages and in different ways. Young people are influenced in many different ways and attitudes towards sexual diversity is changing. However, for some young people, they may be more vulnerable to some of the issues around sexual health and sexuality and need extra support.

This training course clarifies the meaning of sexual health and sexuality and how young people develop through a ‘cognitive sexual spectrum’. This course considers what can influence young people and how talking about sexual health and sexuality can be challenging.

This training course identifies different types of sexualised behavior from ‘healthy’ behavior through to potentially ‘harmful’ behaviour and how to recognise and react to these, whilst considering types of young people who may be especially vulnerable to the risk of sexual bullying.

This training course identifies key legislation and regulations (including PHSE requirements) and provides ideas on how best to talk to young people about sexual health and sexuality and ways to promote sexual diversity. This is a Level 3 Accredited Course.
