UK’s biggest RSE lesson returns

The biggest online relationships and sex education (RSE) lesson is returning once again on 14 September 2022 at 10am.

Young people’s sexual health and wellbeing charity, Brook, are inviting schools to join their free, one hour broadcast led by experts.

The live lesson will explore this year’s sexual health week theme of ‘breaking barriers’.

It is aimed at young people in year 9 and above.

Brook’s head of education, Becci Shutt, said: “We know that young people can find it difficult to talk about topics that are personal or new.

“A vital part of breaking down barriers is supporting young people to speak up if they need help, and prevent them isolating themselves from friends and family.”

Brook has been providing relationships and sex education (RSE) to young people for over 55 years.

In this year’s lesson, they will draw on their expertise to equip young people with the skills to:

– recognise it can be difficult to talk about some topics with peers, adults and professionals

– identify some strategies for talking about topics they find difficult

– understand there are services to support them, and how to access these services

Earlier this year, Brook welcomed over 15,000 students to their ‘Big RSE Lesson’ in celebration of LGBT+ History Month.

Brook said this upcoming session promises to be bigger than ever.

For those unable to attend the live event, it will be available catch up on demand for 12 months.

The Big RSE Lesson will include a webinar exploring breaking barriers and a live panel event in East London.

The live panel will be chaired by Brook Ambassador and Sex Educator Ruby Rare.
