Sexual health education

Dr Max Biddulph, Associate Professor, School of Education

Dr Biddulph is Director of Postgraduate Taught Programmes and chairs the LGBT staff network. He has long standing experience in teaching Personal Social Health Education in secondary schools and specialises in the delivery of experiential learning. He has delivered Sex and Relationships Education to young people in a variety of educational settings including youth work, state and independent education sectors and the care system. Following the publication of his co-authored policy-oriented book Moving Goalposts: Setting a Training Agenda for Sexual Health Work with Boys and Young Men, he has been extensively involved at a national level undertaking large projects and training for the National Children's Bureau, Sheffield Centre for HIV and Sexual Health and the former Teenage Pregnancy Unit.

Local authorities are concerned about rising homophobia in schools. Dr Biddulph draws from his research to address homophobic and transphobic bullying through the national literacy strategy in primary schools. Through the Transgender Issues in the Workplace Working Party he advises Nottingham City Council and Nottingham Police as well as Citizens UK to address and reduce hate crime.

Dr Biddulph’s work addresses the Government Education Equality Objective to ensure new relationships and sex education (RSE) and support young people to stay safe and prepare for life in modern Britain.
