RSE Awards 2021

17 May 2021

Sex Education Forum is delighted to launch the RSE Awards 2021 – celebrating excellence in teaching relationships and sex education.

With Relationships and Sex Education now statutory in all schools in England we want to ensure that all children and young people are offered the best possible provision.

We know that inclusive, effective, safe, and participatory RSE lessons depend on excellent teachers and educators, so we’re putting the spotlight on the people who make high-quality RSE a reality.

We are calling for entries from educators working within school and youth settings. Entries can be made under one of three categories: 

  • Educator of the year for inclusive RSE
  • Educator of the year for most improved provision
  • Educator of the year for innovation in the Covid pandemic

A judging panel including young people will decide on the winners, to be announced at the Sex Education Forum summer event on 8th July 2021. 

Don't wait to be nominated - put yourself forward and seek the support of either young people, parents, governors/trustees, or colleagues for your entry. If you know an educator with star quality encourage them to apply and support their entry. 

To make your nomination please complete the form below and send it to us by 24th June 2021
