Course Duration: 50 minutes (approx.)
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.
