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
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.
I think that well-being comes under the RSE umbrella and certainly it should be a part of PSHE. Our relationship with ourselves is an incredibly important topic but I think it’s important that we get it right. The key for this is to understand how our relationship with ourselves should be construed through the broader[…]
Sometimes it can be difficult for practitioners to engage with young men around relationships and sex/sexuality education. This article considers why that might be and also gives you some top tips.
I was chatting with my Facebook group colleague Alice 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.
Just as it’s counter-productive to hype up the risks of STIs it’s also counter-productive to hype up the risks of pregnancy.
One area where RSE really sits in the context of the broader PSHE curriculum is in doing anti-oppression work. Inclusive RSE is a really important aspect of this, making sure that everyone feels visible in our materials and resources. It’s also important that we aren’t reproducing a one size fits all version of sex and[…]
RSE practitioners might be tempted to show graphic pictures of STIs. Here I’ll argue why this is a bad and counterproductive teaching method in relationships and sex education.
Here are my responses to the RSE Consultation which I did yesterday (I know I know, I’ve had weeks to do it, but it’s just me here). It’s a big consultation and it’s unwieldy, but if you wanted to have your say about the content of the RSE guidelines for secondary schools then that would[…]
