Respectful relationships education toolkit: Implementation steps

The implementation steps are part of the respectful relationships education toolkit.

The toolkit has been developed to support schools in understanding, planning, implementing and sustaining a whole-of-school approach to preventing gender-based violence by promoting gender equality and respectful relationships.

The respectful relationships education toolkit consists of two documents:

  • Overview – includes the evidence, background information and components of a whole-of-school approach to preventing gender-based violence in schools.
  • Implementation steps – outlines the actions to be undertaken at each stage of the implementation cycle.

The implementation steps and resources have been developed to support schools in understanding, planning, implementing and sustaining a whole-of-school approach to preventing gender-based violence by promoting gender equality and respectful relationships.

It is critical that your school leadership and staff in the respectful relationships education implementation team have a thorough understanding of the basis of respectful relationships education and are committed to seeing this work through. Please ensure you’ve read the respectful relationships education toolkit overview to understand the rationale, evidence and terminology of respectful relationships education.
