Teaching Respect Ed

Teaching Respect Ed is a comprehensive 2-day training program that gives teachers the knowledge and expertise to effectively deliver primary prevention training for violence against women. It provides educators with the practical knowledge of gender theory, the power structures that inform women’s experiences of violence, principles of diversity and inclusivity, and delivery methods for primary prevention programs.

At the conclusion of the training participants will:

  • understand the causes of violence against women and girls and use this knowledge to improve student learning
  • understand how to organise content to plan for learning experiences about gender equality and inequality
  • understand how to apply knowledge of gender equality to develop engaging learning activities
  • understand the legislative requirements to ensure students’ wellbeing and safety

This training targets 1.1, 2.1, 2.2, 4.4 and 4.4 of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
