Resources in Education

In education there are some major points that support the implementation of Protective Behaviours:

  • Adopted by the whole school community and has a place on the timetable.
  • Strong network of support exists for teachers using the program.
  • Need for use of detailed materials.
  • Parent/Carer participation – as part of the whole school community working together.

In NSW, Protective Behaviours has been available for use by schools since the early 90s.

The curriculum context for prevention education differs from state to state but Child Protection curriculum is usually taught within Personal Development, Health and Physical Education learning area.

For example, in New South Wales there are syllabuses for students within Years K-12 and Protective Behaviours is included in each of these syllabuses.
