Top Tips

Health professional Elaine Hyde

  • I like to agree some ground rules with young people at the beginning of the session and display them in the room. I always say I will not be discussing my personal life and I will not be asking anyone to share their own personal information in the session. This often puts young people at their ease and should prevent any awkward or personal questions directed at the deliverer.
  • If you don’t feel you have up-to-date information about contraceptive methods there are some straightforward demonstrations in the video fact files that you can show directly to pupils or use them to remind yourself before a lesson.
  • While the subject is sensitive the DVD is humorous as well as informative, and this usually puts pupils at their ease.
  • I also like to agree with the students that we will not make any personal comments about our peers or family e.g. Louise has already had sex. If a student does start to discuss a person you can quickly remind them about the ground rules.
