Who makes the best sexuality educators and why are key questions for those who design and deliver school-based sexuality programmes. Those who teach sexuality education are integral to programmes that successfully support young people to experience their sexuality positively (Forrest, Strange and Oakley, 2002; Harrison, Hillier and Walsh, 1996; Hilton, 2003, 2007; Strange et al., 2006; Wight and Buston, 2003).

Drawing on the research’s empirical findings, this chapter considers who young people think make the best educators and why.
