Number one in relationships & sexuality education

The True All School program is leading relationships and sexuality education (RSE) program. The program has been developed for the needs of Australian schools and families, backed by True's 40+ years of experience. 

Mapped to the Australian National Curriculum

The True All School program is evidence-based and mapped to the national curriculum for Prep to Year 10. Year 11 & 12 programs support students to develop 21st century skills in line with the Queensland Curriculum & Assessment Authority (QCAA) senior syllabus. This provides school leaders with peace of mind, with highly-trained educators providing up-to-date content in a flexible format. True's team works closely with schools to ensure that programs meet the needs of the school, providing one-off training or more comprehensive programs over several years.

Behavioural impact

  • Although schools can select a single year program, students benefit from a coherent program mapped across all school years.
  • Learning is reinforced across several lessons, aiding recollection & behavioural change.
  • Courses are more interesting for students when they focus on their emotional & social development rather than a purely biological approach.

Flexibility

Courses can be tailored to address local circumstances. For example, True can tailor programs for smaller classes with multiple year levels. Further, True offers several course options for schools to maximise learning outcomes or budget stretch.

True's approach

True has been trusted by schools, families and community groups to deliver relationships and sexuality education for over 40 years. True's approach to education involves respectful facilitation, free of discrimination and mindful of the diversity that exists in different relationships and families.

Students, teachers and families

True offers a suite of professional development opportunities for teachers in conjunction with the All School program. True recommends training for teachers as a way to help them prepare for the kinds of questions that can emerge following education sessions. Schools can also arrange sessions for parents and carers to support their child's learning.

Preparation

In preparation for this type of education, it is helpful to have an introductory lesson for students. This increases comfort levels in the classroom and enables students to get the best outcome from the sessions conducted by True. True can conduct this introductory lesson or provide the teacher with materials at no cost. True can also provide support for the teacher through face-to-face training or the delivery of a pre-recorded webinar.

Bookings

The True All School program is offered Queensland-wide.  Please contact our state-wide contact number with enquiries or to make a booking: (07) 3250 0280 or schools@true.org.au.
