Sexualised behaviour and experiences are part of the natural learning process of children and young people, and they express how people are beginning to identify with themselves, their own sexuality, and the influences around them. 

However, this behaviour can become problematic when further issues can cause children and young people to attempt to engage other children or adults in sexual behaviours which would not be considered usual or expected at their current age.

This course provides learners with knowledge of the meaning of sexualised behaviours and the difference between healthy, problematic, and harmful behaviours. The course discusses the possible influences which may have caused these behaviours to be displayed and provides ideas for supporting and signposting children and young people who present sexualised behaviours, and their family and support teams.

The learning objectives are as follows:

  • To understand what sexuality is
  • To be aware of the importance of childhood sexual development
  • To know the pathways into sexual behaviours
  • To understand healthy and unhealthy sexual behaviours
  • To be able to work with young people with sexualised behaviour
  • To be aware of the personal impact of working with sexual behaviours

This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
