WITS 2.0 is on its way

We’ve been talking on the website, on our social media, and in newsletter to our schools & partners about big changes coming to the WITS Programs. Here’s a bit more about what’s happening:

Subscription model

The biggest innovations WITS 2.0 is bringing are designed to ensure program sustainability and integrity and help us support you better. To achieve that, all schools who use our programs will now require a subscription. The cost of the subscription includes all of the program enhancements, new website interactivity, and much more.

  • Subscriptions are for schools; once your school is subscribed, teachers can access the full site.
  • Community leaders and their organizations will have their own complimentary subscription option to access training and resources.

You can read all the details of the subscription package — including costs, benefits, and materials — in this PDF.

Training and Implementation guides

The all new online training for both educators and community leaders is responsive for all devices and being used by school staff from coast to coast. We’ve also developed a new 8-step Implementation Guide for classrooms. Thank you to those that provided your advice for these new versions!

While awaiting the new WITS website, staff at subscribed schools can access the new training by contacting educ@witsprogram.ca.

New website

In 2022 we are launching a new website with updated training & materials, new videos, and more. Check back here to find the new site when it is ready. The website will be your WITS home for these and all the other program improvements.

Feedback

This work will provide tools to make the WITS Programs easier to deliver and more effective at preventing peer victimization. To make sure we are meeting those goals, we need your feedback. Please let us know what you like, love, or would like changed in our materials, website, and system by emailing info@witsprogram.ca anytime.
