Young people are exposed to a lot of information about sex – from TV, magazines, friends and online. We know from our research that young people can find it hard to rely on these informal sources of information and want good-quality, reliable information from trusted sources.
The Sexual Health & Crisis Pregnancy Programme has developed many resources to help teachers and youth workers do this important job.
RSE Training for teachers is provided by the SPHE support service www.sphe.ie.
There are a number of sexual health training courses available for youth workers, in areas such as sexual health promotion, sexual health and safer sex negotiation skills for teenagers and delaying early sex among young people. For details click here.
Check out our ‘Facts & Figures on Teenage Sexuality’ section to find out what young people in our research think about sex education, relationships and sexuality. The CPP has lots of research and resources that may be useful in helping to open up conversations around the topic of relationships and sexual health with young people.
For young people taking part in the Young Social Innovators Relationships & Sexual Health Challenge, the ‘Facts & Figures on Teenage Sexuality’ section may be useful in helping generate some ideas for tackling a specific issue in your school or community.Print Page
