About The Training

Formed in 1999, Sexplained® Ltd is a British nurse led company which uses only highly skilled and extensively experienced nurses working in the field of contraception and sexual health, and other related professionals, to offer accredited training and CPD updates in a face to face way. We can also develop bespoke Units if a particular topic is desired.

To reach a wider audience and for it to be able to offer British accredited training to more people, particularly in developing countries, we deliver training for but are not part of Sexplained Foundation; a separately registered British non-profit organisation, formed in 2001. We impart information in such a way that students tend to absorb it well, in a non-academic, enjoyable way.

Sexplained® Ltd is a National Centre for and is offering accredited training Units validated by AQA (Assessment and Qualifications Alliance), the UK’s largest exam board.

The AQA Unit Award Scheme (UAS) provides the opportunity to give students formal recognition of their success in short Units of work; it promotes effective teaching and learning by ensuring that those writing and delivering Units give careful consideration to learning outcomes, evidence and assessment and set down clear targets for students.

All of our Units are at AQA Level 3 – which equates with other courses at GCSE A Level or NVQ Level 3. We can, however, design bespoke Units from Entry Level through to Level 3, as required.

We complement various university courses and are different. We spend time on the little things they can’t. We work with small groups of students and we have the help and support of senior sexual health lecturers at one of the London universities offering sexual health courses. They recognise our training as a firm foundation for their formal, academic courses.

Certificates and CPD

On satisfactory completion of each Unit students will receive two certificates.

A Statement from AQA, setting out what has been covered and recorded and a Sexplained Certificate of Study. At the end of each academic year, students receive a further letter from AQA, stating which Units they have completed that year.

For those attending for CPD, we will issue related CPD Certificates for inclusion in learning portfolios.
