PDST Relationships & Sexuality Education (RSE) - (PRIMARY)
Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) incorporating Post- Primary Child Protection is now integrated into the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST) forming part of the newly-formed Health and Wellbeing team within PDST. This new team will provide continuing professional development and support in Social Personal and Health education, Physical Education, Stay Safe, Child Protection, Relationships and Sexuality Education, and Bullying Prevention and Intervention for teachers in primary and post- primary schools.
The PDST is offering PRIMARY RSE workshops in Kildare Education Centre this term. The course will take place over two afternoons; it is necessary for the same teacher to attend on both afternoons.
The focus of the course will be primarily on teaching the sex education elements of RSE from Senior Infants to Sixth class, in the context of Social, Personal and Health Education. The course will be experiential and practical in its approach.
The seminar will include:
· An overview of RSE as an aspect of SPHE
· The role and function of an RSE policy
· Methodologies for teaching RSE
· Creating a safe classroom environment
Participants are asked to bring along their own copies of the four RSE teaching books -
“Resource Materials for Relationships & Sexuality Education”
Schools are invited to nominate one or two teachers to attend the training. The groups will be limited to 25 participants and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Priority will be given to ensuring that as many schools as possible send at least one teacher; if places are available a second teacher will be accommodated.
The course will take place in Kildare Education Centre on two consecutive Wednesday afternoons – Wed 25th Feb and Wed 4th March 2015. The course will begin at 12 noon and finish at 3pm. A light lunch will be provided; this will be available from 11.45am.
Participants are eligible to claim for travel expenses but not for substitution cover.
