The Department of Education and Training has developed a number of training materials and resources to raise awareness of domestic violence and support available to assist staff experiencing domestic and family violence. In addition, curriculum resources have been developed for use in schools.
PowerPoints have been developed for both school based and office staff to raise awareness of domestic and family violence, its impact and prevalence and the supports available to assist staff personally affected.
These resources have been modified for general use in Catholic education workplaces and schools but individual Catholic School Authorities may wish to further tailor resources. This information has been highlighted in the attachments.
The Department of Education and Training has developed the Respectful relationships education program as part of the Queensland Government’s commitment to ending domestic and family violence. The program has been developed in consultation with a range of stakeholders including teachers and school communities.
1. Curriculum into the Classroom (C2C) materials for Prep to Year 10 Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education (HPE) are currently available via Scootle for non-state schools. Through the HPE curriculum, students develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to manage a range of health issues and concerns and opportunities exist for schools to address domestic and family violence.
2. To support schools who wish to provide this curriculum outside of the HPE program, DET has developed additional Prep to Year 12 resources. These resources are now available via Scootle.
