After the course you will:

  • Feel more confident in your understanding of RSE and classroom delivery
  • Believe in your own competence to facilitate effective RSE
  • Be better informed when selecting and adapting published resources
  • Have some great ideas for developing curricula and resources of your own
  • Know how to integrate an ApauseToo approach with your PSHE curriculum


This hands-on and interactive workshop identifies the essential practices and theories that are associated with successful RSE. The group will explore the principles of the only UK programme with published evaluations showing positive changes in beliefs and behaviours, and discover they can be applied by any practitioner. There will be opportunities for attendees to share and refl ect on their own experiences.

Feedback from other training events

“Thank you David, I really enjoyed the session. From the “vibe” in the room, I could tell that probably all of the other trainees found it as entertaining as I did.

I formed the opinion that your resources were really well informed and that a lot of thought and care had gone into their production. When I am the form tutor charged with delivering this topic, I would be grateful to have your resources as templates for the session.” Neil Hankey – Trainee, South West Teacher Training.

“It went really well last year, the resources are so easy to follow with interaction from the pupils being the key aspect which has enabled fun and productive lessons. There is so much to cover that we haven’t got through all the resources yet and we are now looking to introduce the Peer mentor programme this year.” Fiona Burgess - Wellingborough School, Northants (coeducational day independent school)

“The year 12 sessions went really well so I plan to do the same thing next year” Berni Hachipuka, Okehampton College (2014 OfSTED – Outstanding in all areas inspected)

The PSHE Association’s Subject Lead Nick Boddington says:

The ApauseToo material was originally developed in partnership with the University of Exeter and offers schools a comprehensive programme of sex and relationships education for key stages 3 and 4.
This programme is based on current models of good practice involving teachers, health authority professionals and pupils’ own peers in its delivery and its impact has been evidenced through independent (NFER) evaluation. It meets the quality standards of the PSHE Association.
