Successful teaching of comprehensive relationships and sex education requires a sound understanding of the subject, its teaching methods and approaches, and the regulations and statutory guidance that apply
Whether comprehensive relationships and sex education is delivered through a stand-alone or integrated subject, it is paramount that teachers are trained to deliver the subject in an effective and inclusive manner. This requires a high level of subject knowledge, understanding of national regulations, associated legislation and best practice, and how the subject is taught, assessed, recorded and reported.
Teaching lifeskills training is structured in a manner that allows teachers to develop knowledge and skills through a cyclical learning process of subject knowledge, instruction, active participation and evaluation.
