Speakeasy


Speakeasy Cornwall Workforce Training (3 Day Course)

Suitable for: Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Parent Support Workers, Social Workers, School/Community Nurses, Youth Workers, Family Support Workers etc.

(Appropriate for those working with children and young people of all ages.)

Speakeasy Cornwall Workforce Training has been developed over the last 10 years for our multi-disciplinary children’s workforce – many of whom have had no specific training in this important area throughout their professional training and career.

The course enables participants to develop their skills, knowledge and, crucially, confidence in discussing with children and young people topics such as;

consent, puberty, healthy and unhealthy relationships, personal boundaries, keeping safe, sex, sexuality, gender, transgender, sex and the law, sexual health, answering tricky questions and the impact of the media on children and young people’s sexual development/understanding.  

This is an experiential course with lots of activities and ideas to try out and then use in your practice with children and young people and/or their parents and carers.

Feed-back from recent course participants:

‘I feel so much more confident and ‘at peace’ with talking about these subjects now…’

I really liked the course for the safe, non-judgemental space it provided for discussion on how to continually introduce and discuss relationships and sexual matters in a gentle and positive way.’

‘Excellent and necessary course.’

‘Very well presented and content was excellent. Both fun and serious.’

Time:  9:30 - 16:30.  Please arrive at 9:15 for a PROMPT start at 9:30.

Chy Trevail, Beacon Technology Park, Bodmin PL31 2FR.  Refreshments available but please bring your own lunch.

Please note: You must attend the full 3 days training on Monday 18th, Tuesday 19th and Monday 25th March 2019.
