Primary Prevention - Foundations eLearn

down arrow


Our new eLearn provides you with an evidence-based understanding of what drives violence against women, and the actions we can all take to prevent violence from occurring.
Ending family and gender-based violence is possible, and we all have a role to play in stopping this violence from happening in the first place. We want to break this cycle of violence by challenging the culture and attitudes that drive it. To do this, our eLearn builds your foundational knowledge of primary prevention and the drivers of gender-based violence.  

Adapted from Safe and Equal’s flagship primary prevention training Prevention in Practice, this self-paced and interactive eLearn module equips you with key knowledge and skills to begin your journey into the prevention sector.  
Primary Prevention Foundations is also suitable for those outside of the prevention sector who are keen to gain a better understanding of the primary prevention evidence base and provides participants with a wealth of resources to continue their learning. 
If you are curious about primary prevention and social change, this is a great place to start your learning journey.

To provide practitioners with flexible learning options, this training is also a pre-requisite to attending Prevention in Practice: Design and Delivery.  Once you have built your foundational prevention knowledge at your own pace, we invite you to join our virtual training on prevention program design and delivery.
