safeguarding through the curriculum
It is open to all PSHE education teachers in the West Midlands, with priority given to those from Birmingham and surrounding areas if over-subscribed. The session will explore what makes young people vulnerable to radicalisation, and the protective and preventative factors PSHE education can develop to reduce extremism risks.
The twilight is provided with funding from the Home Office as part of its ‘Building a Stronger Britain Together’ programme, awarded by the London Community Foundation programme.
Attendees will gain practical support to review, plan and implement a PSHE education curriculum that effectively safeguards pupils, including:
- Awareness of the knowledge, 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
- Knowledge of resources to support safe and effective lesson delivery
Book your free place by visiting the Services for Education website.
The session will be held at Services for Education, 3 Holt Court, Holt Street, Birmingham B7 4AX.
