This training takes a more detailed look at the rationale for preventing and addressing SRGBV and provides guidance to Ministries of Education, national partners and schools on how to develop or strengthen programs, policies and practices to address this issue.

The training presents a practical tool to do so, the Connect with Respect classroom program, which has been designed to help teachers deal with SRGBV in their local context and to teach secondary grade students to understand the causes and effects of gender-based violence, and thereby, to develop their skills for building respectful relationships. Participants will be familiar with delivery of the participatory classroom program and methods for engaging broader school-wide approaches to creating a safe, supportive and gender-inclusive school environment.
