Who we are

A teacher stands at the front of a classroom, speaking to the students. She has long curly brown hair and is wearing a black jacket and white top. She is smiling and above her on the wall is a clock. To the foreground of the image is the blurred outline of a student with their hand up to ask a question

Established 2011

Sex Education Australia (SEA) was established in 2011 because we were determined to provide quality, age-appropriate sexuality and relationships education to Australian students. Since then, we’ve delivered sessions to tens of thousands of school students and their parents and caregivers, seeing first-hand the positive difference this type of education has made in individual lives.

Working in schools and with families

We started by working in schools but now also work directly with families, supporting them to have real, helpful and informed conversations. We know how challenging it can be – as a parent or caregiver – to know what to say, how and when. It’s these connections with families that are highly rewarding, as we help parents have tricky but essential conversations and support the development of skills and strategies needed to keep their children safe and well.  It’s a privilege to be part of such family learning.

Experienced and committed educators

SEA has a team of confident, experienced and committed educators delivering our programs in primary and secondary schools, and working with parents and families online. Our content aligns with the Victorian Curriculum, is inclusive and acknowledges diversity. Our school presenters are skilled at putting students at ease to help them feel comfortable with the material in a relaxed, inclusive and non-judgemental environment. Please see our positioning statements and FAQs for more information about the company.

'Awesome presentation. For an awkward topic you managed to make it
fun and non-confrontational. I learnt a lot and it gave me so many ideas
to start and manage conversations that may come. Well worth coming.'
