Relationships & Protective Behaviours Training for Teachers of Pre-School - Grade 2

The goal of Relationships and Protective Behaviours Training is to build teachers’ skills and confidence in delivering education about the human body and relationships. Safety, Consent and Relationships are focus areas of the Australian Health and Physical Education Curriculum (Australian Curriculum, 2022), therefore it is vital that teachers are familiar with current content and practices in these areas.

This training builds on teacher content knowledge and assists teachers to plan programs about the human body, relationships and social safety. Relationships and Protective Behaviours Training supports teachers to appropriately respond to difficult questions about the human body and how babies are made; early exposure to pornography and inappropriate behaviours in the classroom environment.
