For Professionals Supporting Young People

KIP Education’s unique training provides effective techniques to create awareness around gangs, crime, knife crime, motivation and resilience in young people.

Training empowers professionals to take on sessions and interventions that they may have previously found awkward or out of their skill’s zone. Each course provides not only up-to-date information, they also encourage professionals to take on these challenges and create effective and interactive interventions, lessons, sessions and workshops that staff and young people will enjoy.

It is important to reach young people as early as possible in the grooming process or, ideally, before they come into contact with gang recruiters. This is why gang training is suitable for professionals working with both primary and secondary schools with the content tailored to the appropriate age level.
