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. For our eLearning module in prior to the course dates, participants will be required to undertake reading and video assignments and complete an online module in their own time. Both the June and August eLearning sessions of Sex in the City will be presented online via Zoom: participants will join our presenters in a virtual classroom for interactive sessions from their own device.

At present, the December sessions of Sex in the City are scheduled to be presented on-site at our Action Centre location, but may be adjusted to eLearning sessions in line with physical distancing and safety recommendations.

For more information see the provisional timetable here (subject to change).
