  • Why choose this qualification?

    The Sex and Relationship Education for Parents and Carers qualifications have been developed with the support of the Family Planning Association to equip parents and carers with the knowledge and skills to provide advice and guidance to their own children about sex and relationships.

    The Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications are designed to help parents and carers develop the knowledge and confidence to be able to talk positively and comfortably about relationships and sex with their child in a manner appropriate to their age and level and understanding.

    The Level 3 qualification is designed to support facilitators working with parents and carers, so that they can help them develop the knowledge they need to discuss sex and relationships with their own children. It also covers the skills that the facilitators will need to put parents and carers at their ease and to enable them to run sessions where learners feel comfortable in sharing diverse opinions about sex and relationships.

    The objective of the Gateway Qualifications Levels 1 and 2 Awards In Sex and Relationship Education For Parents and Carers is primarily for own growth and development. The objective of the Gateway Qualifications Level 3 Award In Supporting Parents and Carers to Provide Sex Education to their own Children is a qualification that indicates an individual can undertake a specific role in the workplace and that may be relied upon by employers.
