The EMPOWER Plymouth project has enabled a strategic focus on developing a quality assured framework for Relationship and Sex Education in Plymouth. The work has been founded and led by Plymouth young people who have provided insight from their experiences and used this to create media productions to help facilitate understanding and learning. The project has worked alongside 871 individuals who have participated in workshops, training, co-creation and focus groups. The EMPOWER Plymouth Resource Pack has been created which provides schools with links to access a self-assessment audit, quality assurance framework and bank of Relationship and Sex Education resources (including media productions on definition of Healthy Relationships, 5 secondary school lesson plans and staff training media production focused on increasing confidence in delivery).
The EMPOWER Final report and the Education professionals Resource Pack are available below.
A healthy relationship is a relationship with friends, family or loved ones that is built on a solid foundation of respect, honesty, communication and trust.
The main purpose of this project pack is to provide Plymouth schools with a resource that enables them to understand their own progress towards a whole school approach to healthy relationships education. The pack includes:
• Whole school approach audit (PSHE Association)
• Quality assurance framework (designed by Young People)
• Access to a bank of quality assured resources
• Link to staff training materials
