UPCOMING ANTI-BULLYING AMBASSADOR TRAINING DATES_
HOW TO GET INVOLVED_
Anti-Bullying Ambassador training days are all-day events which provide a great opportunity for your school to meet other schools within your local community to share ideas and partake in shared activities. The day aims to empower young people and staff members by providing knowledge of what bullying is and how to tackle it. At the end of the day, students will make an action plan of how to approach reducing bullying in their schools and will become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors!
Get excited and make tackling bullying a priority in your school by booking a place at an Anti-Bullying Ambassador training day below.
Bespoke anti-bullying training sessions are delivered within your school setting for up to 30 students. The young people in your school are trained to become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors by equipping them with the knowledge and skills they need to tackle bullying and raise awareness within their school and local community. We offer bespoke packages such as assemblies, workshops, talks with parents and will aim to tailor your training day to your requirements.
Each young person trained will receive a workbook, pen, pencil, notepad, Ambassador Badge, wristband, certificate and a guide for their parents/guardians.

EARN NEW BADGES_
All trained Anti-Bullying Ambassadors are given the opportunity to earn an additional series of badges to showcase their anti-bullying achievements. These badges focus on the themes of respect, community, wellbeing and online safety, and give anti-bullying teams something to work towards as well as extra guidance and motivation for putting their ideas into action.
“My mind didn’t wander once- I was absorbed and the trainers were great; the whole day was interesting.”
Student, on Anti-Bullying Ambassador Training
We’re on hand to support you in your anti-bullying work right from the outset. You’ll leave our training day with plenty of tools and resources to get you started as an Anti-Bullying Ambassador. You’ll also find a wealth of resources on our website to guide you through your anti-bullying campaigns, tailored to support you whether you’re an Anti-Bullying Ambassador, Teacher or Parent.
All staff who attend our Anti-Bullying Ambassador training will receive our monthly Anti-Bullying Plus: Aftercare support emails which share suggestions for good practice, useful tips for implementing your anti-bullying policies, inspiration from our featured school of the month and regular support opportunities through our Aftercare scheme. For 12 months following the training, your Anti-Bullying Ambassador team will be invited to quarterly catch-up calls with our dedicated Aftercare Team, where you can use the time to tell us about your progress or use our expert knowledge to guide your Anti-Bullying work. You’ll alsohave the opportunity to attend our limited free Upskill training, available to all trained Anti-Bullying Ambassadors as a next step to help you take your anti-bullying work to the next level.
There is also the opportunity for your school to submit case studies of good anti-bullying practice to the Department for Education to be shared on social media and with Ministers. Many of the schools we’ve worked with have received high Ofsted ratings as a result of their continued actions against bullying.
Lead Anti-Bullying Teachers and School Staff will also receive special certified training that contributes to their Continued Professional Development.
To enable us to develop our training and ensure you get the best out of the programme, The Diana Award invites you to provide feedback at points before and after the training.
You will receive three surveys: there is an initial pre-training survey for you and your team of Anti-Bullying Ambassadors to complete up to a month before the training and sent as a link by our events team once your place has been confirmed. We will then ask you to complete a further two surveys; at the end of the training day and another three months after the training. These surveys will be used for quality control and impact purposes only.
‘Just wanted to say a huge thank you for today. It was superb to see the students so involved, engaged and keen to get the ball the ball rolling. I was worried that I would have to drag them all through the project, but your inspiration has meant they are all buzzing and will be taking full ownership of the project (as it should be!).’

‘I am convinced that our improved attendance now 95.3% and fall in exclusions is a direct result of our engagement with The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Programme. Having Anti-Bullying Ambassadors trained by you has changed lives, attitudes and I would go as far to say the whole culture of our school’.

I enjoyed working with the trainers because they incorporated games into their teaching which was fun. They provided a lot of useful help when talking to our group which helped us come up with ideas on how to promote anti-bullying awareness. l was also praised a lot when I got picked to be the ABA Leader for my school which really boosted my confidence for this role.

'I really enjoyed spending the day with other schools and learning new things from them about how to stop bullying from happening in schools. I learned that we as young people have some really good ideas of how to stop bullying and I learned this from the great long video we watched seeing things in action!'
