About this event

This training is free for West Berkshire Local Authority foster carers only. If you are from out of area and would like to attend, please contact us for costings.

Talking to young people about their sexual health can be a challenging experience. In this training, we draw on our 55 years of expertise of talking to young people about their sexual health and provide best practice on how to discuss a range of sexual health topics.

This training is based on the context of children and young peoples lives including their vulnerabilities, and the responsibilities of Carers to talk to young people about issues relating to relationships and sex.

Learning outcomes: by the end of the training participants will be able to…

• Learn about topics and issues affecting young people, and the need to talk to young people, and specifically looked after children, about sexual health.

• Explore scenarios and statistics related to young people in care.

• Develop your skills to support young people to achieve safe, healthy, happy relationships, including how to talk to young people about sensitive topics

• Introduce topics such as sexually transmitted infections, contraception, keeping young people safe, sexuality and gender.

• Understand your own values in relation to sexual health.

• Access to free resources and ongoing support
