BESPOKE TRAINING
Rather than attend our general training morning, you can hire Herts Aid to provide bespoke training for your organisation, focussed as you wish.

Please contact Emma.Absolon@HertsAid.co.uk for more information.
 

SCHOOLS AND TEACHERS
We provide a growing number of interactive and involving sessions in small groups, class-sized workshops and larger assemblies.

We pride ourselves in adapting our work to suit the needs of attendees and the ethos of the school. Our basic workshop directory includes options such as:

  • Sexual Health
  • Contraception
  • Puberty
  • Internet Safety Training
  • Healthy & Unhealthy Relationships
  • LGBTQ+ Awareness
  • SRE for teachers: How do you deliver Sex Ed?

We deliver from puberty through to sixth form, including Special Educational Needs. Due to changes in our funding we now charge schools £70 per hour plus travel in order to maintain our excellent Herts Aid service.
