The RJ4All International Institute and the Chance for Change (C4C) Erasmus strategic partnership are pleased to offer this interactive free CPD certified e-course, aiming to train youth workers, educators and all those working with young people on how to use media education and the power of restorative justice to address gender based violence (GBV) in youth settings.
The e-course consists of six modules which aim to increase knowledge, skills and awareness on detecting GBV, hate speech, gender norms, stereotypes and overt discrimination while empowering our target groups with gender responsive pedagogy, restorative justice knowledge and media education.
It has been prepared by the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership comprising of the RJ4All International Institute (UK), ASAD (Italy), GIDE (France), Epomorfotiki (Greece), OTI (Cyprus) and Universidad de Huelva (Spain). The course convener is Prof. Theo Gavrielides. Prior to designing this ecourse, the partnership carried out thorough research that involved our target groups. The findings were published as part of the C4C project, which can be downloaded from here.
The e-course can be paused as many times as needed. It takes approximately 10 non-stop hours to fully complete all modules and take the CPD test. Additional reading materials are also provided for optional further learning and research.
We have included software that make the e-course accessible in various languages as well as for those with visual and hearing impairments.
Successful completion will lead to CPD (Continuous Professional Development) Certification (10 points).
