|One day AIM Education Course – Understanding and Managing|
Problematic / Harmful Sexual Behaviours in Education Settings
|Target audience |
This course is designed to meet the needs of Education professionals and those services which support Education staff, in understanding and appropriately managing problematic or harmful sexual behaviours
within education settings.
|Course Aim |
This course is based on the AIM Education Guidance (Carson 2017) and aims to increase awareness of Education professionals and Education support services of why children and young people may act in a sexually problematic/harmful way and to increase participants’ confidence in understanding and managing these behaviours in education settings.
The AIM Education guidance provides information from research and practice and tools (checklists and pattern mapping) for assessing and communicating about sexual behaviours internally and externally with parents and other agencies.
It provides a structure for RAMP safety and support plans and the RAMP process for managing sexual behaviours in education settings. It also covers other questions that Education staff ask, such as how do they talk with parents? How do they deal with technology assisted sexual behaviours in school/college? How do they deal with pressures from parents and governors?
The guidance includes suggestions for intervention with exercises that are appropriate to be used within an Education setting.
