Note:
As part of its commitment to transparency, AWARE released our internal review of our Comprehensive Sexuality Education programme (CSE) in August 2010. The internal review set out to examine:

  • The intent and development of the programme
  • Its content
  • Its delivery by trainers
  • The questions that had been raised about it
  • Any areas that might need improvement

The review team interviewed eight CSE trainers, two members of the programme development team, and reviewed CSE development files, the Basic Instructor’s Guide (IG), and the material that was used by students during the workshops. Read our report here.
