In the UK the average age for starting a sexual relationship is 16/17, at this stage in their life unplanned parenthood and/or an STI can cause a myriad of problems for both students and college. Whilst some young people recieve good sex and relationship education (SRE) in Secondary School many don't. Recently, we were commisioned to undertake research in a 6th form college which highlighted a vast gulf in knowledge and prior learning. We cover a range of topics and a variety of delivery styles: small groups, workshops or roadshow.
SRE is still an important element of their education, health and emotional well being.
