Our new one-day CPD training courses for primary and secondary PSHE leads will explore what makes young people vulnerable to all forms of extremism and radicalisation, and the protective and preventative factors PSHE education develops. You will come away with practical solutions and useful materials to review, plan and implement your PSHE education curriculum in a way that effectively safeguards pupils.

With funding provided by the Home Office as part of its ‘Building a Stronger Britain Together’ programme, our free training days for both primary and secondary PSHE leads will help you to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to plan and teach this challenging aspect of PSHE education.

Delegates will gain:

  • awareness of the skills and attributes PSHE education develops to support resilience to extremist ideologies of all kinds
  • an increased understanding of extremism, the process of radicalisation and  of PSHE education’s role in safeguarding pupils, in line with schools’ statutory duties.
  • increased confidence in effectively mapping and planning curriculum provision across key stages
  • knowledge of resources to support safe and effective lesson delivery
  • awareness of how to manage challenges presented by this sensitive curriculum area
  • techniques for evidencing your school’s work on preventing extremism and radicalisation

The training takes place in London (27th September), Leeds (12th October), Birmingham (8th November), Bristol (28th November) with separate workshops for primary and secondary PSHE leads.
