Relationships and Sexuality Education

Relationships and Sexuality Education Project, Curtin University

The Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) Project, based at Curtin University, provides a range of professional development opportunities to Western Australian schools (K-12) in the area of relationships and sexuality education (RSE).

Our training aligns with the Western Australian curriculum and is suitable for all school sectors. Our focus is on supporting teachers (both pre-service and in-service) to delivery RSE in schools. As we strongly adocate that schools embrace a whole-school approach to RSE, we are keen to also support school administrators, support staff, community health nurses and others who work in schools.

The RSE Project offers high-quality professional learning events and presentations delivered by Curtin University academics, Western Australian school staff and a number of carefully chosen external providers.

Support they provide includes two 2-day FREE professional development workshops per year (one in Perth and one regionally), four after school webinars (one per term) on a range of RSE topics, a biennial day-long Symposium including keynotes from influential people in the RSE space, and tailored support for individual school sites through full school professional development presentations, school audits of current practice and policies, and guidance implementing RSE within the curriculum.

The RSE Project is funded by the WA Department of Health, Sexual Health and Blood-borne Virus Program.
