The training modules are designed to support you with implementing the CIOS PSHE Curriculum in your school.

There are nine modules in total, some of which are in two parts. Each module is no longer than 20 minutes and the majority last 10-15mins. You are advised to watch the modules in order. You can watch them as many times as you find helpful.

The accompanying training log contains an initial reflection on how your school currently delivers PSHE, plus space for you to record key points and any actions you want to make a note of as you go through the modules.
