We have recently placed a high precedence on educating our students on knife crime. We have done this through inviting the Police in to talk to our students. They educated them on the law and stop and search as well as giving the students a chance to ask any questions they may have. This was a fantastic opportunity for our students and all those involved engaged in a positive and mature manner.
The students also had sessions with the Street Doctors, who were set up in 2008 by medical students in Liverpool who realised they could save lives by teaching emergency first aid to young people. Our learners were involved in interactive sessions tailored for young people where they were taught what to do if someone is bleeding or unconscious. Teaching young people to call for help and deliver simple first aid can and does save lives and it was great to have our students involved in these workshops.
