What are we doing?
‘New research reveals that 84% of teachers and support staff believe bullying is a problem in their schools and 42% of school staff feel they are not equipped to tackle bullying.’
This is our first conference solely aimed at adults working with young people who are seeking advice and guidance from experts in the field of education, anti-bullying and internet safety. We have compiled this conference in reaction to the research stated above in order to meet the needs of professionals working with young people.
The workshops are designed to give a well-rounded view of the key aspects in engaging yourselves and those around you in building and developing an effective anti-bullying campaign within your setting.
Our conference is being supported by:
Carrie Grant, TV Presenter & Vocal Coach
Caroline Millin, Facebook
Sophie Linnington, The Parent Zone
Laura Higgins, UK Safer Internet Centre
Ged McNally, Blackpool LEA
