Teenagers To Be Awarded 'gcse In Sex'

Recommended Posts

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/educationnews/8008994/Teenagers-to-be-awarded-GCSE-in-sex.html

Teenagers will learn how to use a condom and obtain the morning after pill as part of the first GCSE-style qualification in sex.

Pupils will be able to gain the equivalent of a D grade under the new course which has been devised to raise awareness of issues surrounding relationships, contraception and sexually transmitted diseases.

The Government-funded qualification is being offered in nine schools and colleges for the first time this term with plans to expand it across the country.

Last night, the move sparked outrage among families’ groups who claimed it legitimised sexual promiscuity and failed to make any reference to marriage.

But Suzanne Cant, research manager at the qualifications provider NCFE, which is running the course, said: “Sexual health education should play a part in the curriculum for all young people.

“The latest figures show teenage pregnancy rates are falling, but not falling at a fast enough rate to meet Government targets. Meanwhile, annual diagnoses for sexually-transmitted diseases are already in the hundreds of thousands – and increasing all the time.

“Part of the way to tackle these issues is through education and [the] qualification offers a formal way to assess and certificate learners to help ensure the right messages are being delivered and understood.”

NCFE - which used to stand for Northern Council for Further Education - formally launched the Level 1 award in sexual health awareness this week following official accreditation by Ofqual, the exams regulator. Level 1 examinations are equivalent to low-level GCSEs graded D to G.

Who's going to teach them? Isn't there a legal problem with practical sessions until they reach at least 16? Will there be a good market for private tuition?

I wouldn't do anyone who passed with a Grade lower than B.

Imagine taking the exam, and then passing with a only a G. You'd never live it down.

Can hookers with a GCSE in sex charge more than hookers who don't have any formal qualifications?

Those with no qualifications may be diagnosed as dyssexic and given remedial tuition and extra time.

if they had to display posters on the wall like they do with basic food hygiene certificates,then obviously you would opt for the michelin 3* without the rubber if possible.

...but it'll cost you!

if they ever did have to put up a points-system for this,it would be highly embarrasing for all concerned to purvey,or request services from underqualified staff.
