Sex and Relationships Education
Dudley experiences a high rate of teenage pregnancies and evidence suggests that a high percentage of young people are involved in risky behaviour. This project worked with artists to develop a Sex and Relationship educational resource for young people and teachers working in Dudley.
The project was delivered in two stages. During the first stage, the young people were appointed as co creators of the resource pack. They were encouraged to consider what approach works best in promoting public health messages associated with sex and risky behaviours to their peer group, whilst at the same time learning more themselves. During the second stage of the project, the resource pack, which is based upon young people’s ideas and creative work, was piloted in schools throughout the area. The evaluation explored whether the project enabled participants to:
• Think about issues around sex and relationships and risky behaviour
• Identify difficult and risky situations they may face
• Gain skills to help deal with difficult and risky situations
