Positive? Awareness of and Attitudes to HIV

This FREE course has been designed for teachers and youth workers to work with the interactive, multimedia resource Positive? Awareness of and Attitudes to HIV.

The Positive? resource was developed specifically for teaching staff to use across the curriculum within school settings with young people in Key Stages 3 and 4.

It uses creative and interactive approaches to engage young people in conversations and learning around HIV testing, treatment, prevention and care. The resource has been designed to meet learning gaps established by the research conducted by The People Living with HIV Stigma Index in the UK. The resource supports teachers and youth workers to deliver highly effective lessons across a range of subject areas such as:

  • sexual intelligence and wellness (personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education, relationships and sex education)
  • human rights and sexual rights (citizenship)
  • campaigning and criminalisation (English/media)
  • transmission, infection, treatment (science).


To enable teachers and youth workers to use the Positive? Awareness of and Attitudes to HIV resource with confidence.

Learning outcomes

  • Consider the different ways the Positive? resource can be used within schools and other teaching environments across different areas of the curriculum.
