Product description

Navigating the Journey: Relationships and sexuality education
Te takahi i te ara: Te mātauranga mō ngā hononga tāngata me te hōkakatanga

Navigating the Journey is a comprehensive programme for educators delivering relationships and sexuality education in school-based settings. It is designed to meet rangatahi at their stage of development – and build on their previous year’s learning. Navigating the Journey is full of lesson plans and activities for Years 1-10 and aligns with the Ministry of Education’s current Relationships and Sexuality Education guidance.

Find out more about Navigating the Journey, including frequently asked questions.
