Are you a teacher, principal, school nurse, youth or community worker? Got a question or issue about sexuality education?

No matter where are you in New Zealand, from 1 June you can have a one-on-one online consultation across a wide-range of sexuality education topics with one of our Family Planning health promotion staff.

All you need to do is complete the Ask for an Online Consultation form on our website.

These Skype consultations are free of charge to teachers, school nurses, youth workers and other community workers who would like support when developing a sexuality education programme, or advice for more effective teaching and learning.

Family Planning Chief Executive Jackie Edmond says the Ask for an Online Consultation form is another step towards improving accessibility of Family Planning services.

“There are some areas of the country that our health promoters can’t cover, so these online consultations will mean educators will be able to access our expert advice, regardless of where they live”.

Health promoters will be able to advise on a wide variety of issues, ranging from how to develop a sexuality education programme in different educational settings, to how to teach more difficult subjects, such as pleasure, or abortion.

To view a full list of possible topics, or to ask for a free online consultation, see our form here.

Please note, these are not clinical appointments and no medical advice will be given during these consultations.

Family Planning has clinics located throughout New Zealand. Use the clinic finder to find your nearest clinic.
