This course is part of Relationships on Film, a series of short learning experiences to support sex and relationships education.


What is coercive control and why is it so difficult to recognise?


We’ve partnered with sexual health and wellbeing charity, Brook, to create this course, which provides educators of 11-16 year olds with film-based teaching ideas to demystify coercive control and other forms of relationship abuse.  You’ll discover how film can enable young people to analyse true-to-life scenarios and fuel important conversations around this sensitive topic.


While learning with us, you’ll gain access to carefully selected film content, expert guidance and downloadable resources that you can take back to your classroom.


Watch a quick, sneak preview of one of the exclusively made videos available in this course, for a bite-sized piece of learning you can apply in your classroom straight away.


Extend your learning

As part of this course series, we are also offering a free live webinar, focused on teaching about sex and relationships in a digital context. In addition to accessing exclusive content, not available as part of the courses, this session is a chance to ask questions to course experts and share ideas with educators across the UK.    


The webinar will be held on:

Thursday 22 June 2023 at 4:00pmRelationships on Film: Let’s Get Digital


A Welsh language webinar to accompany this course series will also run on Tuesday 4 July 2023. If you are interested in attending, please email us at by Friday 16 June 2023.


By the end of this course, you will be able to use film to:

  • Help learners identify and discuss unacceptable relationship behaviours
  • Explain what coercive control is and what the law says about it, as well as other forms of relationship abuse
  • Recognise both the subtle and overt behaviours that may be indicative of an abusive relationship
  • Equip learners with the knowledge and strategies they need to seek support for themselves or friends they suspect may be in abusive relationships.

Into Film courses are only available for UK-based teachers.
