Girl Talk, Boy Talk

Girl Talk Boy Talk is a single sex educational programme delivered by trained facilitators over 4-7 weeks in a variety of settings to meet the needs of a wide range of young people.

The flexible 50 minute sessions have been delivered in schools, colleges and youth clubs to young people aged 13-18 years old. It is an adaptable programme that can be extended where the learning needs of students require it or specific issues need to be addressed within a group.

The group size is a maximum of 12 young people sitting in a suitable room that can be altered to create a semi-circle of chairs and allow for movement to enable activities.

Girl Talk Boy Talk contributes to and enhances the wider PSHE programme as part of the curriculum rather than replacing classroom based lessons. The smaller group sizes with sessions over 4-7 weeks allow the students to build relationships with each other and the facilitator. The safe environment encourages them to ask the questions they want the answers to and to make positive lifestyle choices around relationships and sexual health.
