+ How long are your workshops?
Elephant Ed workshops are designed to run for 60 minutes, but can be altered to fit into a school’s set lesson times. For more information, feel free to get in touch.
+ How many students per workshop?
Our workshops are designed for group sizes of up to 35 students. While we are fleixble, our feedback and experience suggests smaller group sizes promote greater conversation and allow for a more comfortable environment. We have a large team of facilitators who are able to deliver workshops to multiple groups at the same time.
+ What is the ideal set-up for a workshop?
An ideal format for the workshop is an informal environment that promotes discussion. We recommend moving classroom tables to the side. We can also facilitate in other informal spaces, such as halls and theatres. We do require a whiteboard and a screen to show media.
+ What are your facilitators' qualifications?
Our facilitators are highly trained in both our workshop content and facilitation, having delivered workshops to thousands of young people. They are charismatic, relatable and sensitive, allowing them to build a strong rapport and connection with our participants in a short period of time.
Our facilitators undergo rigorous and ongoing professional development and training. All of them are required to meet and undergo training in Elephant Ed's Child Protection Policy and undergo formal mental health training from internationally recognised mental health professionals. Each facilitator holds a valid Working With Children Check.
+ How is your curriculum and content developed?
Our curriculum and workshops have been created in consultation with experts in sexual health, mental health, education and youth work, including La Trobe University. We regularly consult this group to ensure our programs meet the highest standards and are respectful of a wide range of sensitivities. In addition, all Elephant Ed workshops are mapped to relevant State and National curriculum guidelines.
+ How do you cater to religious and cultural sensitivities?
We work with many denominational schools and organisations. Our workshops are flexible and can be tailored to suit individual needs - we work closely with you to ensure our workshops are well-aligned to your school's beliefs and values.
