Teaching It Like It Is – Aboriginal: Relationships & Sexual Health Education for Aboriginal Students

The 2-day Relationships and Sexual Health Education course is suitable for Aboriginal education workers, teachers, SSOs, principals and counsellors who work with Aboriginal young people through schools.

Course Outline

The course covers communication and feelings, healthy relationships, power and bullying, the body, puberty and reproduction, safer sex, media and technology, diversity and more. All topics include demonstrations of activities and resources that can be used with young people.

Please note: Teachers who are looking to run sequential Relationships and Sexual Health lessons in the classroom may find a Primary or Secondary course more suitable, followed by the Resource Update which focuses on Aboriginal-specific activities and perspectives.

Training outcomes

  • Knowledge and confidence to talk about relationships and sexual health with young people and families
  • Knowledge of culturally relevant resources for both younger and older students
  • Linking relationships and sexual health lessons to literacy, Australian Curriculum and Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum
