EOG Facilitator Training Manual Grades 4-12

Introduction
Welcome to the Educator Orientation Guide (EOG) on the comprehensive sexuality education SLPs for Life Skills and Life Orientation for Grades 4–12. This material was developed specifically for facilitators, who have the responsibility and exciting opportunity, to train educators in the effective implementation of the scripted lesson plans for school-based sexuality and HIV prevention education. The South Africa SchoolBased Sexuality and HIV Prevention Education Activity, (hereafter referred to as “the Activity”), supports the Department of Basic Education (DBE) to implement HIV prevention education; support life skills, and provide care and support for learners in public schools.
Activities will address sexual and reproductive health (SRH) education, age-appropriate SRH and HIV-related life skills delivered through curricular means in schools. This includes a targeted focus on adolescents in school, to reduce risky behaviours amongst school-going youth. Activities will be focused on improving learner knowledge and achievement in targeted areas of the life skills programme. The activities will focus, particularly, on topics that address adolescent sexual reproductive health (ASRH), safe sexual behaviour, the mitigation of issues related to sexual gender-based violence, reduction of teenage pregnancy, increased retention of learners in schools and the improvement of education achievement levels.
Although the programme concentrates on sexuality education and HIV prevention education, it is recognised that HIV and AIDS do not occur within a social vacuum. To implement an effective strategy, it is necessary to deal with both causal and resultant behaviours. To this end, the scripted lesson plans have been designed to reach beyond the basic knowledge of HIV and AIDS, to address values, skills and attitudes through life skills topics which are aligned to the Intermediate (IMP), Senior and Further Education and Training (FET) phases (Grades 4–12) Life Skills and Life Orientation Curriculum Assessment and Policy Statement (CAPS).
The South Africa School-Based Sexuality and HIV Prevention Activity
The School-Based Sexuality and HIV Prevention Education Activity has five closely related objectives:
1. Increased number of educators qualified to teach sexuality education.
2. Strengthened capacity of the Department of Basic Education (DBE) to provide education and training for educators to teach sexuality and HIV education lessons in the classroom and improve life skills programme
3. Improved quality of school-based sexuality and HIV education programs – evidence informed and effective to reduce risky behaviours amongst school-going youth; improved learner knowledge and achievement in targeted areas of the life skills programme
4. Increased DBE capacity to work in partnership with the Department of Health to implement the Integrated School Health Program (ISHP); reduce teenage pregnancy levels, and increase retention of girls in school and increased potential to complete high school
5. Improved systems to evaluate the effectiveness of the sexuality and HIV education programme.

The Educator Orientation Guide (EOG) Facilitator Training Manual
This manual is designed to provide facilitators with guidance on how to conduct the training of educators in comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) through the use of scripted lesson plans. The manual is structured according to the prescribed training agenda, and facilitators can follow the instructions on how each activity is to be presented.
Each section of the manual details the presentation of an activity and includes notes on how to conduct the activity as well as any important points that facilitators should be aware of. These notes are labelled, “Note to the Facilitator”.
A participant resource manual has been developed for the educators who will take part in the training which corresponds to this facilitator manual and is also a useful resource for educators in the classroom.
THE TRAINING AGENDA FOR THE PROGRAMME
The training agenda provided is to guide the planning of the training. The agenda is for a three-day programme, however the training agenda can be adjusted according to the number of days or hours that are available for the training. The programme has been designed to encourage robust participant engagement and to provide enough time for meaningful interaction, the sharing of experiences and knowledge. The programme also looks at practical ways to give participants an opportunity to engage with the implications that the scripted lesson plans present for classroom teaching.
The programme is activity-based, i.e. it consists of a set of activities that have been developed to cover the content of the programme. These activities require the participants’ interaction to tackle new topics and concepts, encourage rigorous discussion and debate, and include interactive methods, such as role playing, so that the participants have opportunities to share their experiences.
Facilitators are expected to guide the group discussions and engagements against a set of expectations and ground rules that will be determined by, and agreed to, by all the participants at the beginning of the training.
The programme creates opportunities for self-reflection at the end of each day. The participants are asked to share their reflections on the programme as part of a monitoring exercise, to provide structured feedback on their experience of the training. Several monitoring feedback tools are shared in the manual.
