Adult Training

Tender offers a diverse programme of expert training courses for practitioners working with either young people or survivors of relationship abuse.

All of Tender’s trainers are highly skilled theatre practitioners and have years of experience working on the issue of gender-based violence. Each week Tender’s trainers also work with young people so their understanding and knowledge of the issues affecting young people is extremely current.

All Tender’s training is available to be delivered at your organisation’s venue.

Please note, that our adult training is currently undergoing review and in the meantime we are only offering a limited range of courses. If you would like further information about what we are able to offer or would like to book a course for your organisation, please contact Ruth on ruth@tender.org.uk.

Using an engaging and creative approach, this course is designed to support teaching staff and assistants to feel more confident in their knowledge and approaches when teaching children about relationships.

Through a variety of interactive exercises, participants will be supported to consider and share best practice approaches to preventing gender-based bullying, promoting equality and empowering their students with the skills to form happy, healthy relationships based on empathy and respect.

You will gain:

During this training, participants will:

  • Identify practical tools for promoting healthy relationships – both on and offline – self-esteem and equality throughout their school
  • Develop increased confidence to tackle and respond effectively to attitudes which tolerate or condone unhealthy stereotypes and/or behaviour
  • Develop improved knowledge of how these issues impact on young people and how to lay effective, age-appropriate foundations for relationships education at secondary school
  • Become equipped to safeguard and support young people who may be at risk of, or experiencing, unhealthy behaviour within their peer relationships or from adults


Who should attend:
This course is designed to benefit teachers, teaching assistants and RSE/PSHE coordinators who would like more support in addressing these topics with young people.

Tender recognises that these topics can feel challenging to address with young people. This course is designed to equip teaching staff and assistants to feel more confident in their knowledge and approaches when teaching about relationships, and to empower their students with the skills to form happy, healthy relationships based on equality and respect.

Using Tender’s inclusive, creative approach, participants will be supported to consider ways in which they can promote positive, equal relationships throughout their school, prevent instances of sexual bullying and safeguard young people from becoming victims or perpetrators of abuse.

You will gain:

Following this training, participants will:

  • Have improved knowledge of relationship abuse, sexual consent and how these issues impact on young people specifically (including the laws relating to these)
  • Identify practical tools for promoting healthy relationships – both on and offline – and equality throughout their school
  • Have increased confidence to tackle and respond effectively to attitudes which tolerate or condone unhealthy stereotypes and/or abusive behaviour
  • Feel equipped to safeguard and support young people who may be at risk of, or experiencing, unhealthy behaviour within their peer relationships


Who should attend:
This course is designed to benefit teachers, teaching assistants and RSE/PSHE coordinators who would like more support in addressing these topics with young people.
