Research shows that young people prefer external service providers to deliver Relationships and Sexuality Education. However, some schools employ skilled staff who confidently deliver this specialist subject. Whatever your school’s needs, we have support to assist your requirements and budget.
Relationships & Sexuality education may be:
implemented by staff within schools
presented by one of our qualified team
provided as full or half-day incursions
specialist cohort presentations on pornography
Implemented by staff within schools
Schools regularly share with us how time consuming it is to pull together resources and identify what areas need covering within a holistic approach to relationships and sexuality education. This is why Youth Wellbeing Project developed the IQ programs – to assist in taking the guess work out, and to save schools hundreds of hours in program development. Each IQ program includes a detailed facilitator manual with carefully selected language to keep students safe and support teacher delivery, beautifully designed PowerPoints, student worksheets and tools to assess student learning.
IQ programs equip schools to achieve the Personal, Social and Community Health Content Descriptions as set down in the Australian National Curriculum for Health and Physical Education. Available for Primary and Secondary schools.
Presented by one of our qualified team
We specialise in providing tailor-made classroom sessions, taking pressure of staff overwhelmed with the thought of delivering sexuality education amidst other competing demands. Our Primary and Secondary classroom sessions include hands-on activities, games and lesson worksheets. Delivered in a relaxed manner by Tamara Newlands or Liz Walker, students are confident to ask questions and lean on much needed expertise. Utilising the IQ program materials as a starting point, sessions are then tailored to suit timetabling and budget. Please email to arrange a free consultation to discuss.

Specialist cohort presentations on pornography
We consistently find that the topic schools need most support with is how to talk about pornography. For children and young people to be resilient to the impacts of pornography, Youth Wellbeing Project provides cohort presentations taking a critical porn analysis approach. With presentations available for every age and stage of development, primary school sessions are best delivered in classroom size, whilst secondary schools will benefit from cohort presentations.
Provided as full or half-day incursions
Some schools opt for cohort presentations to address whole year levels, and invite a specialist team in every year for a scaffolded learning experience. This option is particularly suited to Christian faith-based schools requiring skilled presenters to navigate school ethos, values and parental expectations. Full or half-day incursions are available, and are delivered under the banner of ‘Smart Relationships’. Please email for more information.
