Training Courses for Practitioners
Book your place on one of my online courses. Or invite me into your workplace to work with your team directly.
RSE training courses, covering topics such as consent, the body, the self, the sex we see, relationships, and sex itself. All expertly facilitated by me, Justin Hancock. As the name of the website implies, the main thing I do are training courses. For over 15 years I’ve been running training courses up and down the country and even outside of the UK. I’ve had the pleasure of facilitating courses with hundreds of passionate, committed and thoughtful practitioners from a broad range of professions. I also now offer a coaching service for SRE practitioners who don't want to come on a training course but would like some more advanced level support with their work and ideas for training and delivery.

I’ve taught a broad variety of SRE topics in state and independent schools as well as being very at home in a youth club setting. I support schools to deliver comprehensive SRE for themselves, through the DO... programme. I complement this with specialist one off lessons, drop-ins and talks. I use activities which are interactive and participatory, with a focus on skills and values as well as the acquisition of knowledge.

DO … RSE for schools
The ‘effect’ of toxic masculinity influencers
This article is in response to the questions I get about ‘what should we do about toxic masculinity influencers’. I complexify the idea of an individual having a singular ‘effect’. I argue that there are potential harms of uncritically accepting a common sense ‘cause and effect’ discourse of toxic masculinity. How paying attention to those[…]
It’s Simple, Sex and Relationships are Complex
RSE should allow young people to explore the complexities of sex and relationships and not simply just tell them what to think. Sex, sexuality, relationships, consent, gender are all complex topics and we shouldn’t over simplify them. However, that doesn’t meant that delivering RSE is hard. Good quality RSE is about focusing on getting the[…]
How to make talking about sex and relationships easier – a workshop
I ran some workshops with young people in a school recently which was about how to make talking about sex and relationships easier. As you will see I used the Talking Sex Ed game which I launched earlier this year. I’ve written it up in a kind of autoethnographic article. There are bits and bobs[…]
Talks vs Workshops in RSE
When I get asked to work in schools we usually have a conversation about whether I will be delivering a workshop or a talk. Generally speaking, RSE workshops are better than talks.
DO… RSE for Schools
DO… RSE for Schools was a Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) resource which lived at the website dorseforschools.com from 2017 to 2021. It was sponsored by Durex and backed by a number of leading RSE organisations. At that time it was also accredited by the PSHE Association. The resource was written by me, Justin Hancock,[…]
The long awaited guidance for the teaching of relationships, health, and sex education came out on 24th September 2020. The last such guidance came out in 2000: before both YouTube and YouPorn, so we’ve been waiting a long time.
Avoid Individualising Well-being
Our relationship with ourselves is an incredibly important topic but I think it’s important that we get it right. We should avoid indivdualising well-being. We have to understand how our relationship with ourselves is produced from an assemblage of culture, relationships, rights, and power.
The Bulletin is a free resource for you to use with with young people. It’s a newsletter from my website for young people BISH: ‘a guide to sex, love, and you for over 14s’. As you can see it’s a combination of articles, activities, images, and games. Just do a back to back print and[…]
RSE and Young Men
It can be difficult for practitioners to engage with young men around RSE (relationships and sex/sexuality education). This article considers why that might be and what we can do about it.
Showing RSE Videos
I was chatting with my sex educator mate Alice Hoyle about showing videos in RSE and here’s a summary of our thoughts on this. As you can see, we’re not huge fans of this approach, but we do have some top tips at the end.
