Fertility and Assisted Reproduction: Teaching Module for Primary and Secondary Schools


A free classroom resource and web portal for teaching fertility and assisted reproduction treatment in years 3-10.

This comprehensive teaching resource and new online portal are designed to assist with teaching fertility and assisted reproductive treatment – topics that can be sensitive and complex.

Updated in 2018 to include a supportive online portal, the resource will help teachers:

  • Develop knowledge, confidence and skills to support the teaching of fertility and assisted reproductive treatments with young people.
  • Reduce shame and stigma associated with being conceived through assisted reproductive treatments by including discussions around sperm, egg and embryo donation or surrogacy when teaching conception
  • Develop strategies for dealing with difficult questions.
  • Gain access to specialist activities to support teaching and learning in the workplace.

The resource has been developed with the expertise of FPV Relationships and Sexuality Education educators in conjunction with The Victorian Assisted Reproductive Treatment Authority (VARTA) and YourFertility, as well as through expert advice from teachers and educational leaders.
