Training and Coaching

RSE training courses, covering topics such as consent, the body, the self, the sex we see, relationships, and sex itself. All expertly facilitated by Justin Hancock.


One of the best training days I’ve attended and found the whole day really useful.

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 am usually commissioned by organisations to deliver training for their staff or for their networks. I’ve worked with charities, youth organisations, schools, universities, colleges, and local authorities.

If you’re already an RSE practitioner, you might want to come on my new Advanced RSE Training course.

My approach

All the courses I deliver are participatory and interactive. I rarely use powerpoint and the most I talk is when I’m introducing the course before facilitating a group agreement. The activities put the participants first rather than being an opportunity for me to demonstrate just how much I know about sex and relationships.

My expertise is in facilitation and the years of practice I’ve had in creating interesting and challenging workshop materials. We do a lot of small and large discussion work, drawing, card sorts, auctions, some role play, handshakes, spectrums, scenarios, self reflection activities, graphs, discussion games, pastiches of game shows. My approach is trauma informed and absolutely grounded in consent and inclusion.

How the course looks

Participants feel they can safely explore their values and reflect on their own thoughts and experiences. I try to avoid telling people what to think, instead I try to model really great SRE by gently encouraging critical thinking. I also bring a gentle (and appropriate) amount of theory. So participants might learn a bit about Foucault, or Deleuze and Guattari, but only in a way that serves the learning (and in a way that is interesting).

The simple but thought out process of breaking down thought processes around each topic in a way that challenges what we all think we know and how we deliver the messages”

On completion of each course all the participants get an email from me with a reminder of what we covered and a free download link to the resources (such as Planet Porn or Love, Innit) so they can get cracking. They can also ask me questions or advice about the course or their future practice. This is all part of the service and folk like this personal touch.

Thought the training was brilliant.”

Which RSE course topics

There are a few specific courses which I’ve developed over the years (some of which have their own specific pages below). I can deliver one day (or sometimes half day, depending on the course) training on:

  • sex and relationships education (an introduction)
  • the ‘self’ and culture
  • gender (which would, of course, be trans inclusive)
  • sexuality
  • relationships
  • sex (both safer sex and the possibilities of pleasurable sex)
  • consent and communication
  • the sex we see (sexually explicit materials)
  • the body

If you would like an idea of the kinds of activities and areas these courses would cover, visit my Teach Yourself Sex Ed course at BISH, my website for everyone over 14.

All my courses are for up to 16 participants and cost:

£2000 per day for fee paying schools

£1750 per day for Academies

£1500 per day for non academy schools

(plus travel and accommodation costs – I’m based in London).

If you really need the training but really can’t find the budget, get in touch. However the only funding I receive is from my freelance work and my crowdfunding for BISH, so please bear that in mind.
