This course has the same content as the ‘Young People’s Sexual Health’ course for organisations, but this is for individual professionals, rather than organisational staff group bookings.

Course Content

Are you a youth and community worker?

  • Do you feel confident talking to young people about their sexual health?
  • What age do most Australian young people become sexually active?
  • What does non-binary or cisgender mean?

This course is delivered by experienced nurse educators currently working with young people in both educational and clinic settings.

The eLearning package requires participants to complete an online module and two case studies prior to the live classroom date. The live classroom component will be presented online via Zoom: participants will join our presenters in a virtual classroom from 9.20 am to 2.30 pm for an interactive session from their own device. The face-to-face classroom is usually 9.15am–4.30pm.

Regardless of the mode of delivery, a certification at completion is provided for participants and all participants can access an online resource package for 6 months after the classroom date. This package contains further information and downloadable content to use with young people.

Topics

  • An overview of sexual health for young people
  • Key considerations when working with young people, including:
    • Access to reproductive and sexual health services.
    • Sexually transmissible infections and blood borne viruses.
    • Contraceptive options.
    • Unplanned pregnancy pathways.
    • LGBTQA+ resources and referral pathways.

Cost

This course is free and only available to professional individuals working in the Victorian youth and community sector.
