b. Develop (or adapt existing) training materials, presentations, interactive and reflective activities, discussion guides and other key content on the Sexual Harassment Act.
c. Integrate social context issues and gender-responsive perspectives in all training content, including any special considerations for persons with disabilities, youth, persons from rural and underserved communities and other vulnerable and disadvantaged groups.
d. Ensure that the unique needs of small and medium-sized enterprises (including both small businesses and non-profit organisations) are considered.
e. Develop evaluative tools and templates for use with training materials.
3) Conduct a comprehensive Training of Trainers activity, building training skills among BGA staff and stakeholders on the use of the Training Manual and Toolkit.
