October online ACCREDITED relationships & sex education training course

acet UK's comprehensive Esteem relationships and sex education (RSE) training course equips participants to deliver relationships and sex education to young people and can be completed with or without accreditation. The course is 6 days, split over 4 weeks, working online. (Please note that this is a LIVE, interactive course so you will need to attend for all 6 sessions).

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 holds a master’s degree in public health.

Working with the Open College Network West Midlands, acet UK can provide trainees on the course with the opportunity to achieve a level 4 accreditation in 'Teaching relationships and sex education.'
