The Home Office, in partnership with the Metropolitan Police, offered our school a free programme with the award winning safeguarding organisation, The Safety Box Youth Programmes CIC, to deliver a personal development and safeguarding programme to our Year 10 students.
The Safety Box are accredited through AQA and specialise in helping young people and young adults develop important skills such as leadership, communication, team working, presentation, conflict resolution, personal development and problem solving. As a school, we recognise these extra-curricular activities are some of the essential keys to success and that they are a platform on which to build employability skills and future well-being.
The school has been very lucky to receive this fully funded workshop supported by the London Borough of Enfield to help our pupils succeed and above all keep them safe on the streets.
AWAKENING THE POTENTIAL OF YOUTH & KEEPING THEM SAFE
With almost 15 years of experience, we teach simple in depth, effective tactics to reduce violence and avoid threat, we awaken the potential of young people and above all keep them safe.
From The Safety Box:
The Safety Box ® CIC programs are accredited through AQA and are a refined system of training and development in helping young people and young adults develop important skills such as leadership, communication, team working, presentation, high risk conflict resolution, violence reduction, personal development and problem solving. We recognise that these are some of the essential keys to success. They open doors to learning, to life in addition to work. They are a platform on which to build employability skills and the gateway to future well-being and prosperity.
Many of our programs have been developed because there is a growing need to demonstrate to young adults that there are ways to avoid gangs bullying, harassment or more serious, violent situations. Where avoiding threat is not possible, we show how to manage and control dangerous situations.
