This unit is designed to prepare students to deliver relationships and sexuality education (RSE), within a school or community-based setting. RSE is learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, relationships, sex, sexuality and sexual health. Students will apply pedagogical approaches: acquiring knowledge, skills and positive attitudes towards RSE; and examine, plan, deliver and assess current RSE content. Other topics include the importance of a safe and supportive classroom environment, overcoming perceived barriers to RSE delivery, innovative teaching strategies, engagement with key stakeholders, affirming diversity, and working competently and confidently in a multicultural environment.
