“This programme has complimented our SPHE and wellbeing programmes at both junior and senior cycle. It is age appropriate, accessible and delivered by extremely capable, professional and personable facilitators. Our students have enjoyed the workshops while benefiting from them enormously. These workshops provide much-needed clarity and support for students, at a very confusing and demanding time in their lives, on subjects which will have life-long importance and impact.”

“The WISER programme is so important and worthwhile, as no RSE or SPHE teacher would be able to be as frank, honest and open with the lads…it is just great.”
Transition Year Coordinator, Co Galway School
“Some striking elements of the WISER programme are the emphasis on evidence based practice, the ongoing research within the organisation and the up-to-date knowledge on how to give age appropriate information to young people. I have found their expertise a wonderful resource and the students repeatedly give glowing feedback regarding the sessions”.
Dr Andrea Holmes, NUI Galway Medical School
“I have always found the WISER workshops very useful and informative…the workshop that took place here in IT Sligo was excellent with nothing but great feedback from all who attended.”
Barry Clohessy | Vice President / Welfare Officer, Students Union – IT Sligo
“The manner in which the WISER staff deliver this programme cannot be praised highly enough, showing that they are ahead of the curve in areas of programme content. I honestly believe that all young people in Ireland would benefit from this programme.”
Helen Kelly, Dóchas don Óige, Galway
“In a world where our young people are bombarded with information about sexuality, this programme by WISER provides essential facts on sexuality and sexual health in a safe school environment. With their peers young people learn about a topic that was previously conditioned by adults who themselves did not understand sexuality in it’s complexities and beauty’.
