ARK in Schools

Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE)

In November 2012 we held a one-day event within the ESRC Festival of Social Science. This event provided RSE school teachers and sex education providers with an opportunity to learn about some of the most innovative sex education programmes and projects currently available in Northern Ireland. What these programmes and projects have in common is that they are young people-centered. This page provides links to the presentations given on the day and to other useful resources.

ARK has also developed an ARK in Schools tutorial for RSE.
