Our secondary school workshops are tailored to each school’s need. Schools can select from one of our SRE Ready to go, drop down days or request certain content be covered. We work with groups of up to 30, this helps to keep our workshops activity and discussion-based as much as possible. We can deliver discussion/lecture-style to larger groups if requested.
Quality SRE has been shown to:
- delay the first experience of sex
- reduce STIs
- reduce unintended pregnancy
- safeguard from coerced sexual activity
- increase confidence and ability to negotiate consent
What drop down days for schools do Tough Cookies Education deliver? We have a number of standard drop down days which we deliver, these focus on one area of SRE, for example; Sexual health, Consent or Contraception, Puberty, Periods etc. We are happy to provide a bespoke lesson which is created to respond to a group identified need. This can often be accommodated at no extra cost. The extra cost will apply if this is a new topic, or materials need to be adapted to become bespoke to the area/locality.
What age are Tough Cookies workshops for? We have a workshop for most SRE topics which is suitable for each age group from 11 – 25 years old. We use the most recent Government guidance to support the planning and learning outcomes, alongside guidance from the PSHE Association and Sex Education Forum. This ensures the content and activities included are age appropriate for each age group.
How long is each workshop? Workshops last from 50 – 70 mins. Depending on your timetable, we deliver 5 or 6 workshops across the day. We can adapt to bespoke bookings and can provide more intensive half day/full day programmes. For schools within the Greater Manchester area, we can also offer 1-hour workshops.
Class sizes? Ideally, we like to work with around 30 pupils max, this allows us to facilitate discussions and provides an opportunity for students to get involved. We have worked with smaller class sizes which allows more time for activity and discussion. Or bigger class sizes (max 45) but with bigger class sizes the workshop is adapted.
