Preparing Young People for a Diverse Future

This article has been brought to you by Slough Borough Council's Young People Service Youth Worker, Giovanni Ferri, for the attention of all Secondary Schools in Slough.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government and the Behavioural Insights Team (BIT) are seeking state-funded secondary schools and sixth forms to participate in a project to strengthen social cohesion and successful integration through PSHE education.

Taking part in the project would give schools access to free cutting-edge PSHE curriculum resources for students in years 7-13 which promotes tolerance and openness, as well as bespoke CPD training for PSHE leaders to deliver the materials.

As well as improving student wellbeing and happiness, they hope that the intervention will develop critical thinking skills and openness to new ideas.

Participation is completely free and they are particularly interested in recruiting schools in Slough. The trial will not be burdensome for participating schools; BIT will cover administrative costs up to £1,000 and provide all of the necessary resources and training free of charge.

BIT are working with a limited number of secondary schools across the UK and places are filling up quickly. Please get in touch with their project team at to claim your space.

Please see attached document for more information including project outline, benefits and commitment required.
