Impressionable minds Transparent

Providing young people with skills to identify & explore the dangers of criminal & anti-social behaviour. 

We aim to prevent children and young people from becoming involved in crime, by targeting those most at risk of offending and anti-social behaviour with appropriate intervention. Diverting young people from school exclusion and further crime-related behaviours. 

A safe space for young people to examine & challenge their own ideas about crime & antisocial behaviour. 

This is achieved and delivered in KIP Education’s, unique, engaging, energetic style, by dynamic, experienced behavioural experts with a background in youth engagement.

They will experience what it feels like to be drunk with the use of ‘drunk goggles’ and attempt to pass a road side test! A debate will take place on the law in relation to drug use and how drug use impacts on the user and their families.

I wanted to let you know that Adrian was absolutely fantastic today. 

I have had so much good feedback from staff and students – apparently they were absolutely enraptured. Will most certainly be asking him to come back again next year!!
