The Candid Collective
Founded by Sexplain facilitator Becky Lund-Harket, The Candid Collective host fun, informative and empowering events across London.
Their discursive and research-led events focus on sex, bodies and relationships with the aim of starting candid conversations. Click here for upcoming Candid events.
We know the importance of open, honest and straightforward conversation and how it can positively impact on people's lives. We believe that continuing to learn about ourselves and the relationships we have can help us to make informed decisions and to lead healthier and happier lives. We collaborate with inspiring speakers, educators and artists in relaxed and convivial settings and hope that the conversations that are started continue long after the event has ended.
Teaching ‘The Talk’
PUTTING TEACHERS BACK IN THE CLASSROOM
By Suzi Boulting, founder at Teaching ‘The Talk’ and Sexplain Advisor.
With schools set to lose more funding in the near future, teachers will be relied on more heavily to deliver SRE within schools, and many will no longer be able to finance external support and guidance.
Teaching ‘The Talk’ is an exciting new youth-led teacher training programme designed to help teachers feel comfortable delivering SRE from a young person’s perspective.
We need the input of young people and teachers to create a truly unique programme where teachers can use young people for the first time as their base of knowledge and their expert advice. Using Sexplain’s image of having totally intersectional, feminist and sex positive sex education we aim to help facilitators feel comfortable and confident in supporting young people!
Whether you are a young person, a teacher or someone interested in the project please get in touch via our website or social media: we can’t wait to hear from you!
