FPV’s reputation for providing expert coaching and mentoring though its In-Class Professional Learning program has continued to grow. Our dedicated team of educators have received increased requests from schools for this service.
During the 2018/19 financial year, 19 schools and 53 educators accessed the program, with 86% of participants reporting that their confidence in teaching RSE had significantly increased.
Here is some feedback from past participants about our mentoring program:
“Thank-you it has been an amazing learning opportunity and very valuable professional development. Reproductive and sexual health can be a difficult topic to present, but I now have the confidence to deliver the content and to answer difficult questions and be the best educator I can be” – Secondary teacher
“Observing a teacher with expert knowledge answer a large number of questions competently, age appropriately, culturally appropriate and engaging. Students found the lessons rewarding and they have learnt from the experience… [and] when more lessons would be conducted. It was valuable to see the students engaged in learning about their bodies and consent.” – Secondary teacher
“The firsthand experience of watching my facilitator deliver the lesson with such ease was an eye-opening experience for me. It has really developed my confidence to deliver the program” – Primary teacher
“Having the FPV educator there along the way to help with questions, and how to answer difficult questions. It was great to have her model how to discuss and teach topics. It was also great to get up in the last session and do it myself. Although very nerve-wracking it was great to get stuck into it.” – Primary teacher
We are now taking applications for the 2019/20 financial year.
