Despite provision in the New Zealand Curriculum and strong support from young people, whānau, community members, teachers and researchers, sexuality and health education continue to be under-delivered in New Zealand schools.

This symposium focuses on why this is the case, and what needs to change. Hosted by the University of Auckland Faculty of Education and Social work, members of the national Sexuality and Health Education Experts Group join with teachers and young people to discuss:

  • What quality sexuality and health education look like in primary, secondary and kura
  • Why we need increased provision
  • Who should teach sexuality education
  • The differing needs of kura and mainstream schools

An opportunity for robust debate, discussion and research-informed thinking about the future of sexuality and health education in schools.
