Youth Work Tea Break - Relationship and Sex Education
In the last year or so relationship and sex education (RSE) has hopefully become so much more than the biology of reproduction, with a focus now firmly on inclusion of all genders and sexualities as well as the emotional complexities of relationships. Central to this is consent, but just how clear is consent as a concept? At first glance an easy 'yes' or 'no', but with ongoing outrage about 'rape-culture' and concerns about sexual harassment, what is the reality for young people trying to navigate their way through the pressures, expectations and cultural norms of relationships, sex and beyond, both online and in real life? What do young people need to know, learn or understand to feel safe, respected and heard? And what is the role of youth workers in ensuring that consent, in all aspects of their lives, is understood, embedded and practised? This teabreak we ask, what good practice can you share, what do we still need to learn and what have been the challenges along the way? Put the kettle on and get ready, as we bring the issue of consent onto the youth work agenda.
