Partners in Prevention Network Meeting, Wednesday 27 April

The role of respectful relationships practitioners in Victoria is changing. The Victorian Curriculum Assessment Authority’s (VCAA) will shortly introduce the new P-10 respectful relationships education curriculum, as well as training for teachers to deliver this curriculum. While historically, organisations have come into schools to deliver curriculum to students, this will soon be the responsibility of teachers.

What does this change mean for organisations that currently provide respectful relationships education? What support can you provide to schools to ensure the curriculum delivered by teachers is effective? How can you support schools to deliver a whole of school approach? What are the new opportunities and challenges you will face?

Emma Hardley will lead the next PiP meeting navigating the way forward into the newly emerging respectful relationships education landscape.

Emma is a trained facilitator who brings together experience and expertise in both the education and community sectors. She has worked extensively in the prevention of violence against women space over the last nine years, particularly around respectful relationships education. She has done this as a secondary school teacher and as the former Schools Program Coordinator at CASA House. Emma is currently working as a teacher in an alternative setting and as a respectful relationships education consultant trainer for Our Watch and the Department of Education and Training.

When: 1.30 – 4.30 pm, Wednesday 27 April
Where: Blue Room, Multicultural Hub, 506 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne
