Part One
Part One

In this Part we offer advice to students and newly qualified teachers about the theory, evidence and underlying principles that apply to all PSHE education no matter what the content. We consider how adolescent development informs practice in PSHE education, how PSHE education is organised in the curriculum and how we can assess young people’s learning. A critical element of assessment is understanding the prior learning young people bring to our lessons and we explore the importance of ‘starting where young people are’ to provide a baseline for lesson planning and to ensure that our teaching is relevant.
