Abstract

Sexually transmitted infection (STI) rates are on the rise in South Australia as evident from a number of statistical reports. Pre-service teacher education forms the first step towards the professional development of teachers. Attributes such as knowledge and attitude are integral not only for teachers entering the profession but also for enhanced student learning outcomes. However, a review of the literature related to STI knowledge and attitudes of pre-service teachers reveal sufficient gaps in the knowledge and a lack of confidence of this cohort in addressing STI-related education. This is imperative towards the call for an effective teacher education in South Australia given the increased incidence of STIs in the state and the inconsistencies related to the inclusion of knowledge about STIs in pre-service teacher education undergraduate degrees.
