We have several pathways of courses for Parents/Carers this year, that take place in School in a friendly and safe environment.

All of these pathways can lead to Further Education and Qualifications, or they can be completed for personal information and confidence building.

Each pathway consists of several small courses that follow on and build up to a comprehensive portfolio of information and knowledge.

If you are interested in any of the courses available, please contact Sandra (details below). We need a minimum number of learners to enable us to access these free courses, which are being offered in very few places in the Birmingham area. If you know of someone else who might also be interested, please do pass this information on to them.

 

Please note that all of these courses are currently FREE of charge, regardless of income.

What is Speakeasy?

We know that talking to your children about relationships and sex can be difficult and, let's face it, a bit embarrassing. The Speakeasy course was created to offer a relaxed and informal way for mums, dads and carers to get the confidence and knowledge you need to face those tricky talks and awkward questions.

It will help you gain the confidence and knowledge to talk to your child about growing up. By the end of the course you will:

 

  • Be able to talk positively about relationships and sex with your child according to their age and level of understanding.
  • Feel comfortable taking on the role of 'sex and relationships educator' at home.
  • Understand the changes children go through during puberty.
  • Understand how to help children deal with pressure from media and advertising.
  • Have up-to-date information on contraception and sexually transmitted infections.
  • Know more about the relationships and sex education that is taught in schools.
  • Be ready to answer the questions your child is bound to have.

 

Speakeasy groups are small, and learning is informal, fun and creative. The course lasts for 8 weeks and will take place on Tuesday or Wednesday mornings in school. If you are interested in this course, or would like more information, please contact Sandra.
