‘It is not all about sex’: Young people’s views about sexuality and relationships education – the report from Engaging Young People in Sexuality Education Research Report

The Engaging Young People in Sexuality Education (EYPSE)
research project addresses two questions:
1.  What are young people’s views on school-based sexuality and relationships education?
2.  In what ways could sexuality and relationships education be improved?
This report focuses on findings from the first stage of the research project, consisting of an online
survey of over 2,000 students in 31 secondary schools in South Australia and Victoria. The research was
conducted in government secondary schools in South Australia (14) and Victoria (17). A detailed online
survey was constructed and administered to students aged 13 to 16+ years old. The survey used similar
terminology and language to that used in sexuality and relationships education classes.
