Updated resources for post 16 students
We've just updated two post-16 lesson packs this week. The law, rights and responsibilities in sexual relationships and Budgeting & finance.

Please remember to delete the old packs you may have downloaded and replace with the updated versions. Look out for more updates - see the flame icon. Over the summer quite a few will be getting a refresh!

If you haven't already attended our CPD accredited training on misogyny and sexual harassment you can book your place using the 'events' tab on the homepage.
