In response to the COVID-19 pandemic FPV has developed this as an eLearning course. The program is currently focusing on providing free professional development eLearning sessions to youth and community organisations working with young people outside of a mainstream secondary school setting or at-risk young people aged 12-25. We want to support the sector to enable staff to have the knowledge and confidence to start conversations with the young people they work with about their reproductive and sexual health.

This course is designed for a group of staff from an organisation to participate in a full day’s equivalent of learning.

After completing the eLearning program participants will gain:

  • increased knowledge in how to provide support to young people with their reproductive and sexual health; and
  • increased confidence in their ability to support young people with their reproductive and sexual health.
