Brecon Beacons Training Weekend

Meet at Senghennydd Road (back of the Students' Union) • Fri 11 Oct 2019 19:00 - Sun 13 Oct 2019 16:00

Sexpression:UK is a national, student-led charity that runs comprehensive, inclusive, and informal peer-led sessions on relationships and sex education in the community to young people aged 11 to 18. 

In order to volunteer for us it is essential that you are trained, so lucky for you that at Cardiff Sexpression we run a fun training weekend away in the beautiful Brecon Beacons where you learn all you need to know to be a Sexpression volunteer, meet friendly like-minded people, and participate in fun and unique activities. Teaching in schools is a great way to enhance your CV and improve your confidence and presentation skills. It does NOT matter how much experience you have in teaching or in the topic of sex and relationships, we will cover all you need to know!

During the training weekend, you'll learn to deliver the following teaching sessions:
- bodily changes
- relationships and consent
- STIs, safer sex, and contraception
- gender identity and sexual orientation
- body image and the media.
You will also be trained in child protection, how to facilitate, and how to answer difficult questions.

We will be running fun activities throughout the weekend, including a social on the Saturday night, and an walk around Brecon on the Sunday afternoon (these are optional if you don't wish to participate).
