In 2015, the Department of Basic Education (DBE), South Africa developed scripted lesson plans to support teachers in the delivery of sexuality education. The lesson plans were developed consulting closely with the revised UN International Technical Guidance on Sexuality Education and aim to aid teachers to address a range of important topics in a systematic manner. The scripted lesson plans guide educators to plan and deliver lessons and empower them to discuss topics that might otherwise be found to be uncomfortable. The scripts describe each activity, the materials needed, instructions on how to complete the activity, the duration of the activity, the information to be presented, and the points that should be emphasized. The core aim of the scripted lesson plans is to ensure that teachers can help learners build an understanding of concepts, content, values and attitudes related to sexuality and sexual behaviour change as well as leading safe and healthy lives.
