Brook to host the UK’s biggest RSE lesson
On Wednesday 16 September, Brook will host the UK’s biggest online sex education lesson as part of its 2020 Sexual Health Week campaign.
With the introduction of mandatory Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) from September 2020, Brook, the leading young people’s sexual health and wellbeing charity will host Brook’s Big RSE Lesson for all secondary students’ in year nine and above.
The one-hour virtual lesson hosted by Brook educators, will be broadcast to thousands of schools, students and parents across the UK through online platform Learn Live. To date, more than 2270 people have registered to tune in on the day with thousands more expected.
The lesson will encourage open conversations around healthy relationships and touch on the effects that lockdown has had on young people. These topics will enable students to recognise what a healthy relationship looks like covering key areas such as consent, relationship behaviours, online relationships and where and how to seek advice and support. Throughout the lesson students will be encouraged to interact with the presenters in real-time via live polls using Mentimeter.
This year’s Sexual Health Week theme, ‘Get Your RSE in Gear’, celebrates inclusive and inspiring RSE, and this lesson is just one of the many activities Brook will be delivering throughout the week. The week-long campaign aims to prepare and equip teachers with the tools and confidence required to deliver inspiring and inclusive RSE that young people will love.
To sign up to Brook’s Big RSE Lesson, head to their website. Brook’s Big RSE Lesson will take place on Wednesday 16 September from 10 – 11am. The lesson can be live streamed via Learn Live and will be available to view for 12 months following the broadcast day (though we recommend tuning in on the day for the best experience).
Brook is the only national charity to offer a holistic approach to improving the sexual health and wellbeing of under 25s. Last year Brook supported more than 1.4 million young people through its unique combination of face-to-face and online clinical and education services.
