Training of Teachers on Comprehensive Sexuality Education /Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights


One school of thought is of the view that it makes young people sexually active, promotes immorality and expose them to sexually transmitted infections (STI’s), the other is of the view that Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) equips children and young people with knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values that will enable them to develop a positive view of their sexuality, in the context of their emotional and social development. NORSAAC in its view, the latter is the way to go as we believe that CSE makes young people more assertive and assists them makes informed decisions about their sexuality.

As part of the efforts to promote CSE in schools in the northern region of Ghana, NORSAAC in partnership with a Danish partner AXIS has trained selected teachers from circuits in all the 26 districts on CSE.

The training which covered all the 26 districts in the northern region aimed at equipping the teachers with the needed skills and knowledge on SRHR as well as facilitation skills. The technical officers who were the facilitators provided the same training to some selected teachers in all the 26 districts who will then serve as Trainers of Trainees to their colleague teachers in schools.

At the end of the training, most of the technical officers expressed their gratitude to NORSAAC for that wonderful intervention. They lamented that teenage pregnancy in schools was on the increase and that this intervention will contribute significantly in addressing that.

They recommended that after the 3 years’ intervention of the sexuality education project, there should be a national policy on CSE to promote girls’ retention in schools and also reduce STI’s among young people.
