Professional Learning

Professional learning is fundamental to ensuring leaders, teachers and support staff develop the requisite knowledge, skills and understanding to support the implementation of respectful relationships education in their setting.

To assist with implementation of respectful relationships education in schools, a number of professional learning opportunities are currently available, including:

Upcoming face-to-face workshops

Self-paced Online Learning

Online self-guided professional learning modules have been developed for whole school professional learning and individual teachers.

These professional learning modules and accompanying support materials can be accessed through the Department for Education, Children and Young People Canvas portal. Staff can access the portal using the self-enrol link

Please note that the Canvas course is being updated and does not refer to the current documents. The new course will be available and released in 2024.

All professional learning opportunities are designed to:

  • build capacity in schools to develop whole-school approaches to Respectful Relationships Education
  • develop understanding of family, sexual and gender-based violence
  • identify and use best practice teaching methods to support student learning.
