Nurses Courses

FPWA runs several highly regarded and popular courses for nurses and other health professionals wishing to develop their skills in sexual and reproductive health.


FPWA aims to help school staff build their capacity to deliver ongoing and effective relationships and sexuality education (RSE). FPWA provides resource and training support to educators who wish to implement relevant and developmentally appropriate RSE in their schools. This support can include delivery of programs, resource materials and consultancy.

Working with Young People

FPWA offers training courses, consultancy and support for people working with young people in diverse settings to develop their skills to inform, educate and support young people around sexual health issues. This support can include some direct delivery of sexual health education programs.

Working with Aboriginal People

FPWA works in partnership with Aboriginal people and organisations to promote sexual and reproductive health for Aboriginal people and communities. We deliver a range of training courses and programs for Aboriginal professionals and community members and other professionals working with Aboriginal people. FPWA Educators, including Aboriginal Educators, are also available for delivery of sexual health education programs for Aboriginal young people and community groups.
