This CPD certified e-course aims to train youth workers and educators so that they become able to train others to prevent and address gender-based violence (GBV). This e-course will provide them with the skills, confidence and knowledge to use media education and restorative justice in their trainings with diverse target groups including teachers and other professionals, young people and families.
The e-course has six modules leading to its learning outcomes. It has been prepared by the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership comprising of the coordinator, the RJ4All International Institute (UK), and partners 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).
