Home / Our Key Issues

The core of aGender's work is the intersection between high-quality relationship and sex education and excellent practice in the arts across all media. To do this, we ground our work in the QCA guidelines for Personal Social Health Education (PSHE) and Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) and keep up to date with cutting edge thinking Interior Design idea, thanks to our links with the Sex Education Forum. Our workshops are led by practising artists, writers and actors, so that young people experience the intertwining of developing fundamental life skills through creative media.
