Teaching Respect Ed June session

To end gender-based violence and harassment, we need change across all parts of society. Respectful Relationships Education in schools is an important part of this change, helping to prevent violence and equip young people with the skills to recognise and engage in respectful relationships.

Teaching Respect Ed is a two-day training program that equips educators with the skills and practical knowledge to deliver respectful relationship programs in the classroom.

After completing Teaching Respect Ed, participants will:

  • understand the drivers of sexual and gender-based violence
  • understand best-practice standards for violence prevention, and how these apply tschools
  • be equipped to plan, develop and facilitate appropriate learning experiences for students on respectful relationships
  • be equipped to strengthen the enabling environment for respectful relationships 
  • know how to respond when they become aware of sexual and gender-based violence impacting on students or colleagues.

Accreditation: Teaching Respect Ed is TQI accredited and counts towards 10 hours of required professional development.
