Jason has vast experience delivering talks to young people and has worked within many education settings. After six years working for the NHS in sexual health promotion and a background in fitness and nutrition, his down to earth approach is engaging and interactive. Ensuring students feel comfortable to get involved and interact is a skill that has been honed over years of presenting.
Jason recognises a need for realistic sexual health education for young people and he aims to deliver diverse sessions tackling issues that are directly affecting students, from young children covering puberty to older students looking at consent, safe sex and sexually transmitted infections, contraception, relationships and methods of delay. Ensuring students feel at ease with this tricky subject is no easy task, but Jason instantly makes students feel relaxed and comfortable while ensuring the key health messages are taken in and remembered.
Jason addresses well-being and body image with sessions aiming to give young people confidence in their appearance, realise the different influences on them and raise awareness on certain gender specific social issues. The session is interactive and thought provoking. Jason also addresses that the media is having a huge impact on young people’s perception of how they should look. The pressure for guys and girls to fit in with the images they see is creating so many physical and mental health issues.
Jason also delivers talks on internet safety and believes keeping young people safe and informed when browsing the internet is now more important than ever. One of the most common ways that young people are communicating is through social media using apps and games on their phones and computers. The amount of exposure and risk is increasing for young people and we aim to raise awareness on the risks and on methods to help them stay safe.
"We did enjoy Jason’s session, particularly more effective with the younger age group who thought he was a ‘real’ voice. The content was broad but that was our brief and it was well-received. Plenty of opportunity for follow-up with our tutors and the pupils."– Christopher R Bass, Head of PSE, The Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School
"Jason was great. Very professional but relevant and engaging for the students. He was well received by both staff and parents. After taking feedback from various parties, we all agreed that we will try to get him back again next year. Thank you for your help in organising a successful event."
– Jonathan Bridges, Head of Pastoral, Oporto British School
Jason was great! The pupils responded well to him. The audience was largely male and I think it did help to have a young guy presenting to pupils on these sensitive issues. The pupils were engaged throughout. The session was age appropriate, I feel and interactive.– Mrs Hobart, Teacher of Economics and Business, Aldenham School
"The feedback from both year groups has been fantastic. Funny, interactive, informative, the best we've had all year. They felt that you related to them really well and 'knew your stuff'..... Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you again"– Fidelma Kirk, Deputy Head, The Pitsford School
"We have used Jason for a number of years to present Sexual Health to our Sixth Form students, and once again, we were not disappointed. Jason is extremely professional and has amassed a huge amount of knowledge, which serves him well when talking to teenagers. He is able to relate to them and is able to present in a lively and interactive way. He is not embarrassed about any of the subject criteria, which makes him more approachable for the students to question him. The students found his session extremely informative and actually fun. Those who attended last year had retained quite a lot of the information which they then expanded on in the session. Students were happy to participate in the interactive parts of the session and many took part in the Chlamydia Screening afterwards. Jason presented Sexual Health to 170 students aged 16-18, which isn’t normally as easy feat, but Jason managed this with extreme ease and confidence. We will be using him again for our Sexual Health session next year and have already contacted him regarding other areas."– Tina Mayes, Wrenn School, Sixth Form Manager
"Jason was very professional in the delivery of the content. I look forward to working with you in future."– Renuka Bansal, Teacher in Charge of PSHE, Ilford County High School
