What communication skills do I need to teach students as part of RSE / PSHE?
Ages 14-16 : (Theme: Sexual health) : Negotiation & communication within romantic (intimate / sexual) relationships (Target age 15-16 but can be used with ages 14-15)
A significant part of PSHE / RSE (Relationships & Sex education) lessons focus on how pupils can stay safe. Effective PSHE lessons in school help pupils to develop self-esteem and resilience, and communication skills such as advocacy, negotiation and persuasion. These are particularly important when it comes to relationships, whether these are intimate or non-intimate.
