Introduction to the Pedagogy of PSHE

online-or-face-to-face | 1-2 hours | In house at your school

Course description

This session focuses on effective teaching and learning strategies in PSHE Education. Designed for teachers delivering PSHE content, the training focuses on three main areas:

  • Developing your expertise: how to move from PowerPoint to best practice
  • Beyond knowledge: how to develop young people’s skills and values
  • Assessment: how to incorporate formative assessment into teaching

Training will be held online or in person. Training is active and requires participation. If online, please attend with the correct equipment to contribute (e.g. a quiet space, a camera, and a mic).

Sessions are for primary, secondary, and special education staff. The training will focus on PSHE pedagogy and will most benefit staff who directly deliver lessons. For those new to PSHE, or those with experience keen to recap the basics and share their expertise.





Designed for teachers delivering PSHE content

Sophie Collins

Sophie has a decade of experience working in schools, with training in Philosophy for Children, and expertise in informal education. In 2017, they moved to Manchester to start facilitating RSE lessons for a leading youth charity - six years on, and they still love the city and the subject. In that time, they have had the privilege of working with young people across the range of education settings from primaries through to college, in mainstream and SEND provisions, as well as in youth clubs and PRUs. They have delivered extensive RSE and PSHE training and coaching, striving to support educators with their skills, knowledge, and confidence. Sophie has worked in policy development and volunteered as a charity trustee; they’re as passionate about good governance as they are about pedagogy. Between 2020-2022, they completed a Master's in Education & Social Justice, with a focus on PSHE delivery. In June 2023, Sophie joined the Healthy Schools Team as PSHE lead in a maternity cover position and is enjoying putting their knowledge and skills to good use. In their free time, Sophie likes to watch, perform, and spend too much time thinking about, stand-up comedy. This year they hope to get a cat.
