Training Resources

UK

Training actions were coordinated in the UK by the Centre of Youth work Studies of Brunel Uniervsity, and resources were produced in collaboration with Rights of Women, About Young People and the London Borough of Lewisham.

The cascade resource 'Unpacking Gender Related Violence' aims to explore the significance of language and culture in reinforcing or challenging gender inequalities, violence and Gender Related Violence (GRV) in work with young people. The process of ‘Unpacking GRV’ is explored through three key stages within this resource: Inform, Assess and Act. It is expected that the ‘Inform to Act’ process set out within this resource will provide youth practitioners with a framework for exploring GRV within their practice settings and identifying practical steps for action in the prevention of GRV amongst young people. It is available in three complementary files:

Unpacking GRV 1 : Unpacking Gender Related Violence
Unpacking GRV 2 : Promoting healthy relationships and sex & the law
Unpacking GRV 3 : Taking Action to Combat GRV - Information, Resources and Activities for Youth Practitioners

Promoting gender conscious youth work for gender equality.

The Department of Applied Social Studies [DAPPSS] at Maynooth University produced within the GAP WORK project a resource pack for Youth Work Practitioners on Gender Conscious Youth Work Practice, with a valuable catalogue of resources for the professional Youth Worker to inform their thinking and their practice. The resources have been used by NUIM in designing and delivering training during the GAP WORK project to community work and youth work professionals. It includes training tools and relevant literature that trainers and educators will find helpful in understanding the complexity of considerations inherent in becoming a gender equality practitioner. Some of the resources are aimed at working with adults and some are for working with young people.  Almost all of the resources are available on line, and there are useful websites that contain on-going, updated information and tools for doing gender based training, work and study. For more information and to download the rsourec: GRV Resource Cataloguefor Community Work and Youth Work Practitioners
