Published 2021-11-01

About this education kit

This kit helps educators teach young people about their legal rights and responsibilities to inform their choices about sex and relationships. The kit can support teachers to deliver the Department of Education and Training's Respectful Relationships curriculum.

The program covers four topics:

  • Age of consent
  • Consent
  • Cyberbullying
  • Sexting.

The teaching resource is designed to be used in combination with video content. It contains session plans, activities, legal background notes and other supporting information for each topic.
