As knife crime is on the increase, educational institutions have a duty of care to keep young people safe. It’s essential that all staff who work with children and young individuals are aware of their safeguarding responsibilities around knife crime. In 2019, Ofsted made a number of policy and practical recommendations for schools to consider. The report was in response to agencies, schools, colleges and other educational providers who want to do more given the huge impact knife crime is having on young people.

Developed by Craig Pinkney, a qualified youth worker with over 15 years' experience, this knife crime awareness training course for schools will provide you with the skills and knowledge to ensure you are able to tackle knife crime effectively.

Please note: This knife crime training course consists of learning through video, task completion and further reading/research. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives of the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
