Training for professionals (Workforce Development)

The Sefton Sexual Health Service Promotion Team is available to deliver training specific to your organisation’s needs, or we can deliver a more generic sexual health awareness session. It depends on the training time available and the level of specialisation you wish to train your workers to.

We are currently undergoing a quality assurance process with our training programmes and some are already kitemarked by Open Award Badge of Excellence

These training course include the following;

C Card training 

Organisations who wish to participate in the Sefton C Card Scheme (community condom distribution for young people aged between 13 and 19) can get started up by accessing a two hour start up training session. All condoms and supporting resources are supplied.

 

Easy Talk 

A 6 week programme for parents devised in partnership with Sefton Family Wellbeing Service. This course aims to increase parent’s confidence in being comfortable talking to their children about relationships and sex. Evidence shows that this can be protective for young people and can lower the chance of them engaging in high risky behaviours.

 

Sexual Health and Young People

A training package based solely around the needs of young people in relation to sexual health.  The aim of the training is to support professionals who work with young people address the issues around sexual health and keeping themselves safe. The package contains 4 workshops each one themed around topics relevant to young people.

 

Sexual Health for workers supporting people with LD

A training session for those who support people with Learning Difficulties.  This course aims to explore how to support people in their right to have romantic and sexual relationships. Content looks at how to do this safely in terms of understanding consent, the meaning of relationships and accessing sexual health services.

 

Support for Schools to be ready for statutory RSE

Sefton Sexual Health is commissioned to work with School Health to support the quality assurance of PHSE in Sefton schools.
This support could be presenting at governors or parent’s meetings, sharing of curriculum contact with PHSE leads to Inset training for designated staff.

 

Groupwork with young people or other vulnerable and at risk groups

This training can be a one off session (part of a course on health or life skills), or preferably we could deliver a more developmental programme lasting five to six weeks.
Subjects could include, consent, STI prevention, contraception choices, healthy relationships.

In addition to our own generic 6 week programme delivered for young people, the team can also offer Outside the Box. This is a personal development programme about sex and relationships for young people that aims to prevent sexual exploitation. It is specifically targeted at vulnerable young people and has been developed by the Sex Education Forum and National Children’s Bureau through funding from Comic Relief.
