Training Overview:

Violence against Women and Girls, including domestic abuse and coercive control, negatively impacts the health of our communities. However, it is not inevitable and can be prevented through collective action. Educational settings, together with other local partners, play a crucial role in this. With the support available through the Domestic Abuse Prevention in Schools Programme, primary schools have an opportunity to embed a whole-school approach to domestic abuse prevention,

Domestic Abuse Awareness and Prevention in Schools training is just one element of how the Programme can support schools to embed this evidence-based approach. This session will equip the participants with core knowledge and skills about domestic abuse and coercive control so that the teaching and learning about healthy relationships, respect and gender equality within classroom environment can be delivered confidently. It will help understand the dynamics of abusive relationships, its impact on young people and families, and the ways to support them.

This session is also available to schools as an INSET. Please email Viktorija to book an INSET for your school.
