Teacher training in relationships and sex education (secondary) 26th May

Statutory relationships and sex education (RSE) has arrived! Are you RSE ready? In September 2020, RSE became statutory in all secondary schools in England.  We understand that many teachers do not feel confident about RSE delivery so we designed our 1-day teacher training course, especially for school teaching staff.

The course is designed for secondary school teaching staff, anyone with a teaching qualification, or anyone training to become a secondary teacher, and is up-to-date in line with the 2019 government guidance on relationships, sex, and health education.

The course will allow you to:

  • Support young people in building healthy self-esteem and respect for themselves and others
  • 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
  • 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 38,000 young people benefited from our materials.  

This training day will be facilitated by Gareth Cheesman.

Gareth has a decade of experience teaching relationships and sex education, is an accredited trainer and is currently finishing a Masters in Public Health.

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 needing a computer and webcam, with access to Zoom or a phone or tablet with the same capability. You can learn more about the free video conferencing software Zoom and can sign up, 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 with the lead trainer.
