Training for Professionals

We are commissioned to support teachers and schools to access a programme of training and support. This helps teachers and schools access resources, improve subject knowledge and build confidence in relation to the mandatory RSE curriculum.

Twelve modules are being designed and will be available, six each year in 2024 and 2025.

Projects for young people

We are currently recruiting young people to take part in two projects over a two-year period:

  • Violence Against Women and Girls
  • Safe Spaces for LGBT+

These projects are young person led and each project will produce outcomes to benefit target groups and influence developing education resources and safe spaces.

This is a very exciting piece of work and we want the voices of the YP of Sandwell to be heard in order to implement meaningful change.
