How to invite Sexpression:UK to teach
Check we can teach at your institution
Sexpression:UK will run sessions in primary schools, secondary schools and sixth form colleges. We also run sessions in non-formal settings such as youth clubs and sports clubs.
Find your nearest branch
You should next find the Sexpression:UK branch nearest to your institution. All of our teaching is done by branches located in universities across the country. These branches are responsible for training our enthusiastic volunteers and organise teaching in the local community, so they are the ones you should contact to arrange teaching.
We can only teach in institutions which are a reasonable distance from our branches. If there is no Sexpression:UK branch near to you, check back next year. New branches are popping up all the time!
Decide what subject you would like taught
Ask our branches about our core offer which include the below topics:
- Bodily changes
- Safer sex and contraception
- Sex and consent
- Relationships and abuse
- Sexual orientation and gender identity (LGBT+)
- Sex and the media
More subjects may be offered by the branch if you ask.
Decide on which dates you would like teaching
Have some idea on which dates you would like the branch to teach. Keep in mind many branches will have difficulty finding volunteers during July, August and September. During July and August universities usually have a summer holiday and during September branches usually recruit and train volunteers.
Contact the branch
Contact the branch using the email address on our branch list. Negotiate a time and subject which work for you both.
Other frequently asked questions about teaching
Does Sexpression:UK charge for teaching?
We are an entirely volunteer run and led organisation and schools will not be charged a fee for our services.
How do you safeguard the young people you teach?
Sexpression:UK volunteers undergo checks by the Disclosure and Barring Service and they are trained to recognise and report potential safeguarding issues. This is to make sure the young people we work with are kept safe. If you have any questions about our child protection training and child protection policy, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
