SafeLanding: a model for addressing the barriers to teaching sexuality and relationships education in schools.

Mandy Stevens

Sexual and reproductive health (S&RH) is a significant health issue for young people with concerns including unplanned pregnancies, rising rates of STIs, increasing incidence of unwanted sex and the impact of social media. Schools, as successful sites for health promotion in S&RH, is affirmed by international research. 

Evidence supports teachers being best placed to impact on the sexual health and wellbeing of young people when a comprehensive, whole-school approach is taken linking curriculum and learning within the school environment to the wider school community. Despite strong government direction and excellent curriculum materials many teachers in Victoria remain reluctant to teach in this area.

Recorded in October 2012 at the 13th ASSERT National Conference on: 
Sexuality: Beyond Difficulties, Definitions and Diversity, Melbourne, Australia.
