This is a flexible programme of study on gender-based violence (GBV), more specifically, intimate partner violence (IPV). It is designed to complement, not replace, existing provisions in Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) and Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE). This programme of study can be used independently and/or in conjunction with the None in Three anti-IPV game, designed with the support of international and UK experts to assist children and young people in the UK. The game focuses on the prevention of IPV in relationships. The name of this video game is Danielle; it is available for free download at: The curriculum design and content are shaped by an interdisciplinary youth-centred approach that draws on and combines critical pedagogy, creative and performing arts, an ecological framework for human development and integrative and intercultural therapeutic practice . Suggested scheme of work activities aim to be cost-effective and rooted in social justice and democratic principles centred on strengthening young people's voice, visibility and agency in an empowering and enabling learning process. The objective is to contribute to conditions for an inclusive, equitable, ethical provision of teaching practice in a safe, contained and boundaried learning process. This curriculum design and development was mapped closely against the PSHE Association Quality Assurance and Assessment Framework, which shaped examples and suggestions for teachers and students. It aimed to be responsive to the principles of the PSHE Association Quality Mark. The purpose of the suggested scheme of work topic is to facilitate the development of critical awareness and enable reflection and action for change within self and others based on enhancing recognition of stressors, capacity for developing emotional resilience, coping strategies, help-seeking behaviour, problem-solving skills and care for self and others.
