Teaching and Learning Materials

​Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships learning resources

Equipping children and young adults with the skills to understand and critique gender norms, the benefits of positive relationships, and how to communicate positively and respectfully is essential preparation for productive and healthy adult lives.

Resilience, Rights & Respectful Relationships (RRRR) is a suite of teaching and learning materials for Prep-to-Year 12. It includes the Building Respectful Relationships - Stepping Out Against Gender-Based Violence resource, written by Debbie Ollis at Deakin University for students in Years 8, 9 and 10.

The new materials cover eight Social and Emotional Learning topics, including gender and identity and positive gender relations to support the delivery of respectful relationships content through the Victorian Curriculum from Term 1, 2017.

The resources support a whole of school approach to creating more gender equal and respectful attitudes, behaviours, structures and practices across the school culture and ethos.

Schools will be supported by range of professional learning opportunities, delivered at the local area level and tailored for school staff and school leaders as they deliver the Respectful Relationships curriculum.

In addition, resources that support the new Respectful Relationships curriculum include ten specialist curriculum consultants to assist with curriculum and lesson planning, and professional development.
