Sexual Health and Relationship Education
Youth Agency Staff are currently involved in the delivery of SHARE to S2/S3/S4 pupils. SHARE is a research based sex and relationships educational curriculum for 12-16 year olds with the main emphasis on improving communication to reduce emotional risks and to enable young people to negotiate taking precautions.
As well as being involved in SHARE the Youth Agency delivers sexual health programmes to S5 & S6 pupils aimed at providing the young people involved with the opportunity to identify and explore issues relating to their sexual health and emotional wellbeing.
The Youth Agency offers a variety of groupwork programmes, these are developed in consultation with Pupil Support Leaders. Young people are identified and referred through Pupil Support Groups, attendance is voluntary and programmes include promoting positive peer relationships, transition work, challenging behaviour, anger management, coping strategies, school attendance, confidence and resilience, anti social behaviour and communication and listening skills.
