Respectful Relationships Education

Professional Learning

Professional learning is fundamental to ensuring that leaders, teachers, and support staff understand and are ready to support the implementation of respectful relationships education.

Last year the Department of Education held state-wide workshops, providing participants with an overview of Respectful Relationships Education, an opportunity to unpack the teaching and learning resources and support to begin planning for school based implementation.

Throughout 2017, Curriculum Services will be continuing to develop a series of online professional learning, further face-to-face workshops and targeted professional learning for teachers and school support staff.

Online Learning

The following online learning object, based on the state-wide workshops, has been developed to support understanding of family violence, teaching practice, support staff development and student learning. Curriculum Services is continuing to develop online resources to support teachers, school based staff and the community.
