What is the purpose of the study?
We have developed an educational resource based around an interactive film called ‘If I Were Jack’ that is designed to help teenagers avoid unplanned pregnancy and improve their sexual health. We are now working to see what the benefits of this resource are to teenagers.
Why have I been invited?
We are currently in the process of recruiting 66 schools in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to participate in this study and your school was one of those randomly selected. Thirty-three of these schools will be randomly chosen to use the If I Were Jack resource and 33 schools will continue with normal practice.
As part of our research we are asking all Year 11 students to take part in a survey on their knowledge, attitudes and beliefs about teenage pregnancy. This should take about 30 minutes. You will be asked to fill in the same questionnaire again this time next year so we can see if your answers change over time. The answers you give will help us to try and improve young people’s health.
