Family Planning Victoria is proud to partner with the eSafety Commissioner as a Trusted Provider of eSafety education.

The purpose of Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) is to help young people understand and identify safe, healthy, respectful relationships. We can use those same skills, knowledge, and understandings, in the online world.

RSE covers many topics which are relevant to the way that young people engage online. These are:

  • Protective behaviours
  • Understanding public and private behaviours
  • Understanding public and private body parts
  • Understanding public and private spaces
  • Social & emotional learning
  • Recognising and challenging gender stereotypes
  • Respect
  • Challenging media representation of relationships
  • Understanding the law around sexual behaviour
  • Critical analysis and discussion of pornography
  • Strengthening digital and media literacy specifically linked to online relationships
  • Discussion of the ethics of sending sexually explicit images
  • Consent
  • Help seeking behaviours
  • Reporting options
