March online ACCREDITED relationships & sex education training course [SOLD OUT]
This training is open to anyone with an interest in RSE: our network of trained educators work in a variety of fields.
It equips educators to provide up-to-date RSE in line with the 2019 government guidance on relationships, sex and health education and the Children and Social Work Act 2017, allowing you to:
- Have an opportunity to gain a university-level accreditation in 'teaching relationships and sex education'
- Support young people in building self-esteem
- Support young people in developing healthy relationships
- Develop confidence in talking openly and sensitively about sexual health issues
- Support young people to develop skills and resilience to deal with the influence and impact of modern technology on relationships and sex (including porn)
- Communicate to young people the importance of making healthy life choices about sex
- Plan and deliver effective, fun and interactive sessions with young people
- Apply best practice and recommended government policy guidelines
acet UK has over 30 years experience in providing school-based education on relationships and sexual health topics. Our Esteem materials and training have been used in hundreds of schools and last year over 35,000 young people benefited from our materials.
This training day will be led by Gareth Cheesman.
acet UK's Esteem network director, Gareth was originally trained as a JNC validated youth worker before moving into teaching relationships and sex education. Gareth has a decade of experience teaching relationships and sex education, is an accredited trainer and is currently finishing a Masters in Public Health.
Working with the Open College Network, acet UK can provide trainees on the course with the opportunity to achieve a level 4 accreditation in 'Teaching relationships and sex education'.
We highly recommend the course is completed with the accreditation as it will help new RSE educators demonstrate their capabilities in the field of RSE, and will also support their professional development.
Completion of the level 4 accreditation requires learners to complete two small assignments based upon the Esteem training and is subject to a formal assessment. If you would like to know more about the accreditation please email us at email@example.com or get in contact via the contact form on this website.
The accreditation certificate costs just an extra £75 per person: to access the accreditation element, please select the £350 training fee option when booking on to the course.
The standard £275 training fee includes each participant's first-year membership of the Esteem network and specifically, for the online course, we will post you a package of physical RSE resources to use during the video training. (If you will need your training pack to be posted outside of Europe, please contact us first before booking onto the course as there will be an additional £20 cost involved in getting your training pack to you).
Being a member of the network licenses you to access the core digital Esteem materials, including lesson plans, activities, and other teaching resources. Additional benefits of Esteem network membership include:
- Discounts on update training events
- Discounts on Esteem conferences
- Regular updates about relationships and sex education issues
- Ongoing support from acet UK staff
- Early access to newly developed resources
The training days are currently scheduled for the following dates. (Please note that, when adapting the accredited training for an online context, we have changed the delivery structure to 6 shorter days compared to our offline format of delivery of 4 longer days).

Thanks to the kind donations of our supporters we are able to operate a small partial scholarship scheme for people to attend the training who can not afford to pay the full amount.

We have worked hard to ensure that, during this time of lockdown, the online version of our training in as interactive and effective as our face-to-face courses. However, in recognition that meeting people face to face can be really valuable for learners, once we are back to running training courses in person, we will arrange optional, free, one-day, in-person, update training events for anyone who attended the video conferencing version of our RSE training courses during the COVID-19 lockdown period.
The technical requirements for learners to attend include a computer and a webcam, with access to Zoom, or a phone or tablet with the same capability. You can learn more about the Zoom video conferencing software and can sign up to, for free, at https://zoom.us/. If you are a first time user of Zoom, you will have the opportunity to 'have a go' with the software before the course starts with the lead trainer.
This event is set up to accept credit/debit card or Paypal payments. If you require an invoice for your employer to pay for your place via another payment method, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
