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, self-guided professional learning resources have been developed for use by school professional learning or individual teachers. These packages and accompanying support materials can be accessed through the Department for Education, Children and Young People Canvas Respectful Relationships Education portal. Staff are required to access the portal using the self-enrol link.

Please note that the Canvas course is currently being updated and may not refer to the current documents.

These professional learning packages are designed to:

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