Event description
This course will explore what interventions are needed in order to properly engage boys and young men in RSE. It will analyse both what should be done, but also how education needs to be structured in order to prove appealing. An exploration of gender and identity forms the foundation of the course. Participants will get to use and evaluate a number of practical resources and learning exercises that have been shown to fit well with the learning needs of young men
