NKBL Practitioner Training
This year’s training has been updated and incorporates our new Mark's Story toolkit and updated Sharp Solutions 2.0 Toolkit. It is designed to support anyone working directly with young people and deliver knife crime prevention sessions and programmes using a youth work approach. The training should be useful to youth workers, campus officers/community liaison officers, teachers, youth justice workers, sports coaches and anyone else working directly with young people and with a prevention role. As always, if you want us to run a local training at any point get in touch with us and we’ll see what we can do.
NKBL Module for Peer Education Groups
For Existing Peer Education groups- we are offering bespoke NKBL training to peer education groups that would like to add “knife carrying/knife crime” to the range of topics that they can deliver.
Groups do not have to have had any previous involvement with the NKBL programme but should be part of an active, established peer education programme. The training will offer young peer educators and supporting practitioners an overview of issues related to knife carrying and young people, an introduction to the range of NKBL resources available and support to begin designing workshops to deliver to other young people
The training will be delivered by Fast Forward. To book a session please email Jane Dailly (NKBL National Delivery Team) or phone 0131 313 2488.
NKBL Comms Campaign
Follow 'Mark's Story' and see what happens next, with each month focusing on the next part of the story. We are targeting the message via our NKBL Facebook and Twitter and to ensure that we're reaching young people in your area, we are looking for partners to support this by sharing the material that we put out with young people that you have contact with. Young Scot is sharing the same messages targeting it to young people and in addition to their FB & TW they are putting out a bespoke Snapchat story each month following the monthly theme.
To make it easier to get involved at any stage, previous months messages are all on our website for sharing, check them out now!
