Tender is an Arts charity working with young people to prevent domestic abuse and sexual violence by promoting health relationship based on equality and respect.
They are based in London and we have linked up with the work they do to become a social franchise of the project, and bring their fantastic work to our area. We are the only agency delivering this work in the North East.
The project, Tender Healthy Relationships, is a 10 hour project which works with one class of students in either Year 8, 9 or 10. Our aim is to help students develop skills for building healthy and respectful relationships. We achieve this through open, creative workshops that explore the healthy and unhealthy aspects of relationships, empowering students to consider their attitudes and behaviour in an age appropriate way.
The culmination of the project is a performance, where students can share their knowledge to their peers.
The project also includes a 1 hour CPD accredited Staff INSET session for 20 or more staff, enabling them to become more confident around the issue of relationship violence and to be able to effectively ensure the safeguarding of their students.
Once the Inset has been delivered, your school will be given a copy of the Tender Facilitator pack (which retails at £45). This pack will enable you to embed the learning into your own school practice through lesson plans, statistics and research information.
Participation in this programme can boost student achievement in Drama, PSHE and Citizenship, and can help schools achieve the new OFSTED criteria for outstanding PSHE teaching.
