Underage & Pregnant (BBC/Mentorn)
Underage & Pregnant went behind the sensational headlines to discover what it is really like to be underage and pregnant. The series was accompanied by two education packs with session plans and especially edited clips from the programme. I was the Executive Producer for BBC Learning on this.
Underage & Pregnant provides teachers with an excellent set of interactive materials which deal sensitively with the issues in question and is designed to facilitate a dialogue between teachers and students about the realities of teenage pregnancy and parenthood.
The underage & Pregnant pack is designed for use with KS3 and KS4 pupils, but is equally as relevant to Post 16 classes. although a PSHE resource, elements of it can be used across a range of subjects including science, religious education, child development and health & social care.
I consider this pack an excellent resource to help address a very dif cult issue.’

This resource is an essential pack of practical sessions that will help to explore sex and relationships education with young people aged 13-19.
the pack is speci cally designed for Youth Workers and the context they work within. this easy to use resource offers a wealth of imaginative activities for young people to develop the quality of their relationships, and their ability to make informed decisions.
With an open and honest style the pack examines the realities of teenage pregnancy and early parenthood. It exposes the stereotypes and explores how to deal with and challenge prejudice.
tried and tested with young people, the underage and pregnant pack is a vital resource for those delivering effective work on sex and relationships education.
