Case Study: The Sex Education Forum (SRE)

In: Case StudyDate: Apr 20, 2019By: Claire Lickman

SRE asked us to create an eLearning module aimed at supporting sex and relationships education that is inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender identities. The module complimented efforts to tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying at school.

The module was funded by Department for Education. It was developed as part of a larger classroom initiative aimed at school staff including teachers, nurses and senior management teams.

An in-house subject matter expert had already developed and trained a face-to-face curriculum on this subject. We worked closely with them to help them understand both the eLearning production process and to share insights into identifying the activities that transform best from classroom to active and engaged online learning.

Happy created two pathways (primary and secondary) through 40 minutes of training designed to be done individually, in pairs or in small groups. We combined formal learning techniques with more informal resources including practical tips, real-life examples and provided scenarios where learners could work through the sometimes challenging questions pupils really need to ask.

I had a fantastic experience working with Happy. They took the time to really think through complex material and to discuss its purpose and how best to communicate the key messages to our users. I felt in safe hands from start to finish and am very pleased with the end result. I have learnt a lot from this experience and have no hesitation in recommending Happy to other education providers.Polly Haste, Training Lead, Sex Education Forum
