Event description

Description

Sexual health and relationships are key parts of young peoples lives. At Gloucestershire Youth Support Team we believe that all practitioners should have the confidence to discuss these issues with young people and have the knowledge to support them and be able to sign post to other services that offer specialist support.

Relationship and Sex Education Training (ReSET) is available to all professionals working with young people and their families in Gloucestershire and offers ideas and information of how to explore issues of relationships and sex education with young people. It is divided into two levels:

Level 1 is an interactive one day workshop that covers:
