About teaching PSHE education

Once you’ve planned your PSHE education programme it’s time to focus on teaching it safely and effectively. 

The first consideration is to ‘do no harm’ – so creating a safe learning environment is key, especially considering some of the challenging issues you deal with as a PSHE teacher. We also offer advice below on planning high quality lessons and choosing external speakers. 

Anyone teaching the subject should have at least basic training on the fundamentals of safe, effective practice. Our CPD training sessions are a great place to start.
