Sex Factor - RSE Training

RSE Training - 'the sex factor'

There is a general misconception that Relationship and Sex Education is not needed for children and young people with complex physical and neurodisabilities. By September 2021 RSE teaching will be compulsory across all schools. These sessions are to enable individuals to book the training (course will run with a minimum of 10 individuals). Should your school/organisation wish to arrange training sessions for up to 20 staff to attend on the same day, please email your request to so we can arrange suitable dates with you, these will generally be available on Fridays.

The training will take place over 2 mornings, therefore, when booking you will need to choose the first session you are able to attend and the 2nd session will automatically be at the same time the following week (both dates are listed in the booking process).

What we can offer

A user-friendly toolkit consisting of training sessions and resources, including 34 ready-made lesson plans and supporting videos for teachers and staff to deliver quality Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) to children and young people with complex neurodisabilities.
