'This book is a gift for anyone teaching PSHE whether they are new to the profession or experienced practitioners.  Sound pedagogical discussion is combined with practical advice to ensure lessons are relevant, meet the needs of learners and allow sensitive issues to be explored in a safe and supportive way.' Liz Griffiths, Lead Assessor, National PSHE CPD Programme

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEe) is a challenging subject and when well taught, of great value. Drawing from theory and practice in education, health and welfare it encompasses sensitive issues, such as relationships, drugs, safety, and bullying, and is influenced by political concerns of the day such as childhood obesity and the health of the economy.

This book, written for those training to teach and early career primary teachers, provides clear guidance on how to tackle sensitive issues and informed ideas to help you to develop into a confident PSHE educator. It has been endorsed as a PSHE Association quality assured resource. The PSHE Association is the national subject association supporting teachers and other professionals working in the field of personal, social, health and economic education (www.pshe-association.org.uk)
