1-day online teacher training for primary schools* dates for Spring 2024

Few teachers receive comprehensive training that fully prepares them for teaching RSE. This course supports teachers, wherever they are on their journey, providing great Relationships and Sex Education that meets the DfE statutory requirements.

Although designed for PSHE leads, many schools prefer whole-staff training for this course. We create bespoke training to meet your school's needs. Please contact us if you're interested in this service and to find out the price.

* This course is designed for primary schools but could also be useful for SEND teachers in settings with older pupils. Please contact us to check to discuss the course content and determine whether it will meet your needs.

What teachers say about our courses

"Our staff recently attended Coram Life Education's RSE training. Their experience was transformational. Staff felt empowered; it was as if a switch had been flipped. They learnt lots of new things and realised the importance of teaching RSE to develop children's skills and behaviour."

"The format of the session was great - mixture of slides/listening/interaction via discussion. The clarity provided about statutory/non-statutory requirements as well as reference to OFSTED expectations was definitely helpful."

"Thank you so much for such an informative and inspiring session. Thank you also for putting everyone at ease - I was a bit anxious before the meeting."

Course Overview

Just like a face-to-face course, we will use a range of interactive techniques and resources to ensure our online training gives you what you need to plan, prepare and deliver effective Relationships and Sex Education your pupils need.

Training will provide:

  • Further guidance on what you're expected to deliver in Relationships Education and RSE aspects of Health Education, and what non-statutory sex education at primary looks like
  • Increased confidence and skills needed to deliver Relationships Education
  • Greater awareness of strategies and resources to support you in consulting and engaging parents about your RSE programme and policy, and talk more confidently about the new statutory requirements

How to take part

All training is conducted online using ZOOM.

Expectations of attendees: 

  • Only one person per Zoom log-in
  • Keep your camera on to maximise engagement
  • Avoid distractions during training e.g. answering emails/phone calls

Course Summary, Dates and Booking

Delivered in two 3-hour training sessions on separate days*, plus an option to book an individual post-course consultation to give further guidance and plan next steps, with our specialist RSE lead, Lisa Handy. Details of this will be provided during the training.

Please note, this is an interactive course with group activities, therefore you must have a working camera and microphone to attend. Anyone attending without this equipment will not be able to participate and will need to a place on another course, subject to availability; the re-booked place will be charged for at the same price and the cost of the original place will not be refunded. This is to make the training as effective as possible for all participants and to cover our costs. 

Please check dates and price categories (SCARF and non-SCARF-subscribing schools) when booking. Please note, prices are per person and no more than 2 people from one school per course.

Please contact us if the current course dates don't work for you and ask to be informed of future course dates, when available.

*The same person must attend both dates.
