Strange, V., V. and Forrest, S., S. and Oakley, A., A. and RIPPLE Study Team., (2002) 'What influences peer-led sex education in the classroom ? a view from the peer educators.', Health education research., 17 (3). pp. 339-349.
This paper is the second of two presenting data gathered from peer educators in the RIPPLE study—a randomized controlled trial of peer-led sex education in English secondary schools. Peer educators were recruited from Year 12 students (aged 16/17 years) in 13 schools in two successive cohorts in 1997 and 1998. Following a standardized training programme they delivered sex education sessions to Year 9 students (aged 13/14 years). Through analysis of 18 focus group discussions and of post-programme questionnaire data (n = 301), this paper aims to identify the issues and processes considered by peer educators to be important in implementing a peer education programme, and to examine peer educators' views on the relationship between themselves and the Year 9 students. Methodological issues arising when collecting, analysing and presenting such data are discussed, and some recommendations are outlined for carrying out school-based peer education.
