Key Stage 3
Our workshops for young people in key stage 3 are designed to build upon the skills, attitudes, values, knowledge about and understanding of disability and diversity they have acquired and developed during the primary phase. They have an opportunity to recognise the and differences within the disabled community and the impact of stereotyping, prejudice, bullying and discrimination on individuals and communities.
They are also encouraged to identify, clarify and if necessary challenge their own core values and how their values influence their choices. Sessions are highly interactive and young people take the lead in these activities. Our trainers, who are disabled themselves, are there to facilitate and stimulate discussion.
Emphasis the sessions will be placed upon communication skills. Students are encouraged to ask questions to the trainers that they may not have the opportunity to do in other forums.
