Speakeasy (Accredited 16 taught hours course)

This is an OCN accredited course designed by the FPA (Family Planning Association) and delivered by approved FPA facilitators.  The course is designed to increase the knowledge, confidence and skills of parents, grandparents, foster carers & residential workers, when addressing sexual health issues. It also offers a platform to raise concerns about issues relating to relationships and sex.  Research has shown that adults/parents are very concerned about answering questions specifically related to sex and sexual behaviour.
