Booking the Training
Suitable for between 5 and 28 teachers from one or more (up to five) schools, The Sex Ed Circuit can be booked during regular school hours, on any two days between Monday and Friday (ideally consecutively, but otherwise with not more than eight weeks in between).
This training is usually booked and organized by a department head. Pick your days (with some options if you can’t get your first choice) and get in touch with me. We’ll book it and go over the details. Then it’s up to you to involve other schools if you wish. You can give them a shout, send them a link to this page, and save money for your school by teaming up.
Please note that a kit is provided for the host school as part of the training, but each guest school will need to purchase their own kit.
Please also note, that the Bonus Lesson Demonstration Day can only be booked for one school at a time.
The Sex Ed Circuit is offered as a two-day professional development training. Start and end times are flexible, but generally 8:30am to 3:30pm works best.
The first day begins with The Askable Adult, which is a prerequisite that aims to give teachers the ability to build their capacity to teach sexual health, to respond to student questions, and to manage sensitive issues. It also helps you understand the role you play and requires you to clarify your own values and biases so you don’t project them onto your students.
The Askable Adult is followed by learning The Sex Ed Circuit lessons and layouts, participating in the lessons, getting familiar with the scavenger hunt questions, and identifying strategies to teach aspects of the P.H.E. curriculum.
We’ll cover the grade 8 circuit on the first day, and the grades 9 and 10 circuits on the next day. You’ll get to experience the scope and sequence and see how they build on each other.
Bonus Lesson Demonstration Day
Again, 8:30am to 3:30pm tends to work best, with 3 x 75-minute lessons (1st, 2nd, and 3rd blocks work best with the 4th block to debrief)
I will demonstrate all three lessons to one grade 8 class, one grade 9 class, and one grade 10 class (maximum 30 students per class) so that teachers can see it in action. There’ll be a debriefing afterward to go over questions, customizations, etc.
Again, please note that this bonus offering can only be booked for one school at a time.
