Let’s Talk: Consent and Healthy Relationships

Course description

This course aims to build the capacity of educators of year 7-12 students to support young people to learn about consent and healthy relationships. The session enables educators to develop their knowledge of the guiding principles of consent, both within intimate relationships and more generally, as well as looking at ways to communicate about consent. The course also examines the hallmarks of healthy relationships and ways to support the development of healthy relationships.

Upon completion of the course, educators will be able to:

  • State the importance of consent, and identify a range of ways for young people to communicate about consent
  • Describe strategies for teaching about consent and healthy relationships
  • Access a range of learning activities and resources for teaching about consent and relationships
  • Support young people to access support services and reliable sources of information about consent and relationships

A range of resources will be provided and recommended which will allow for further learning following the completion of the course. Content and learning activities for students are also linked to the NSW PDHPE Syllabus. The course will be delivered over 90 minutes in our online classroom and uses interactive, engaging and informative teaching strategies, enabling participants to ask questions, reflect on practice and share ideas and resources to support their professional learning.

  • Teachers of years 7 – 12
  • Staff in wellbeing or support roles such as school counsellors and year advisors
  • Casual teachers and pre-service teachers
