What you’ll do

Students will use our library’s HIV/AIDS poster collection as a starting point to explore public health campaign techniques, the history of HIV and AIDS, and contemporary sexual health issues. After analysing historical campaigns, they'll be challenged to design their own poster or create a storyboard for a short film.

One of the session leaders will be a sexual health worker, allowing students to explore any questions they may have in a safe and informed way within a neutral environment.

Who can come

We have developed this half-day study session for groups of students aged 14 to 19, studying GCSEs or post-16 qualifications at school or sixth-form college. You can bring 10 to 20 students, accompanied by staff at a ratio of 1:10.

Due to the small scale of our free programme, schools in the Greater London area have priority until 12 December. From this date booking is extended to schools outside Greater London.
