The aim of this project is to develop a unique, scientifically informed educational resource on the topic of teenage men and unintended pregnancy which will be suitable for delivery within Relationship and Sexuality Education (RSE) curricula of post-primary schools in Northern Ireland (NI) and in the Republic of Ireland (RoI).

The project builds upon a social scientific study of adolescent men’s attitudes and decision-making in relation to an unintended pregnancy. The method of the project will involve bringing together the following key health and educational stakeholders from both jurisdictions: Department of Health Social Services and Public Safety, NI, Public Health Agency NI, Council for the Curriculum Education and Assessment NI, The Health Services Executive Crisis Pregnancy Programme RoI, and the Department of Education and Science, RoI to develop learning resources.

The learning resources will include an interactive video drama which will ‘bring to life’ a case scenario of an unintended pregnancy from a teenage man’s perspective and invite participants’ reflections and anticipatory thinking on such a situation in their lives. The key educational aim is to help young men as well as young women consider the consequences of their choices and develop educational strategies for future or present relationships.
