Abstract

Student teachers play a crucial role in the future implementation of sexuality education. In Spanish-speaking contexts however, research on this topic is scarce, especially regarding student teachers’ perspectives towards their implementation of sexuality education. This study examines the association between Ecuadorean student teachers' cognitions towards Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE), and how this interacts with their gender, previous education and subject and their behavioural intention to implement CSE. Analysis of data from N = 141 student teachers, showed that positive attitudes and high self-efficacy beliefs are significantly associated with behavioural intention to teach CSE. Implications for teacher education and further research are discussed.
