Safeguarding Teenagers

Wednesday 18 May 2016
Conference Aston, Birmingham
Practical strategies and expert guidance for protecting students aged 14-19

Why is this conference relevant?

Teenagers are innately risky. Now add to this the new risks and duties facing your institution such as radicalisation, increasing mental health issues, revenge porn, FGM, homelessness… coupled with a lack of external support, how is your school or college working to keep your students safe?

Learning outcomes - what can I expect?

  • Radicalisation - Know how to identify and assess the risk of radicalisation amongst your students and meet your legal duties in line with the Prevent agenda
  • Mental Health - Gain practical strategies to recognise, support and prevent common mental health issues amongst older students
  • Online Safety - Communicate new risks in a way that resonates and empower students to protect themselves online
