It is essential that sex education in the UK remains strong and that culture wars do not weaken its effectiveness. As highlighted by Gillian Keegan, Minister for Apprenticeships & Skills, this requires a collaborative approach between all those involved in delivering quality sex education, including local councils, parents and teachers. Such an approach will ensure that young people get the comprehensive knowledge and advice they need to make informed choices about their sexual health and well-being.

Keegan believes it is important for schools to provide students with up-to-date information on various topics, such as contraception, healthy relationships and consent. She also wants parents to be actively involved in their children’s sex education so that conversations about these sensitive issues can occur in a supportive environment.
Keegan is also advocating for an evidence-based approach to sex education, which means teaching young people about contraception, sexually transmitted infections and their consequences, and how to protect themselves from abuse and exploitation. This will give them the tools to make informed decisions now and in the future.
Ultimately, it is essential that we continue to provide quality sex education in the UK so that young people are equipped with the knowledge and skills to lead healthy lives. The Minister’s words of encouragement should remind us of our collective responsibility to get this right for all our young people.
