Learning for rights, respect and relationships

May 2009

Every child and young person in Scotland is entitled to learning experiences that allow them to develop knowledge, skills and understanding of relationships, sexual health and parenthood. This PINS seminar allowed us to explore the experiences and needs of children and young people; what the new Curriculum for Excellence means to learning in this area and the importance of parents.
