Big Talk Education

Relationship and Sex Education in Colleges

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 Relationship & Sex Education (RSE) 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. BigTalk Education cover a range of topics and a variety of delivery styles: small groups, workshops or roadshow.  

At college age, RSE is still an important element of student's education, supporting their health and emotional well being.
