Are you interested in becoming a peer educator?
There are only a couple of requirements. You must have been pregnant with your child under the age of 20 as a mother, or 21 as a father, and be able to work in schools.
Get in touch with us and we'll meet up with you for an informal chat with one of our team of teenage parents. They will guide you from there.
Generally, if the work is suitable for you, we will invite you to some paid training sessions. The training will include a group of young parents who are all new to Straight Talking. The first session is usually just Mothers or just Fathers and the training is conducted by one of our experienced teenage parents.
Don’t worry. Our training is very different from school. We believe that you are an expert on teenage pregnancy and we like to listen to your opinions if you want to tell us.
Once initial training is done, you will be supported by one of our existing peer educators until you're fully trained and ready to deliver a course at your first school on your own!
We do understand that you might feel nervous, that’s normal; all our young parents have been through the same process and will tell you it’s great. You will enjoy being a peer educator and always remember, you know far more than the pupils, about teenage parenthood.

Just because you're a young parent doesn't mean that you can't make a mark in this world. Personally working for Straight Talking has completely changed me as a person. It's made me much more confident and made me realise that I can achieve, period.
