Next Step - Young People in Year 7
The sessions support the young people to prepare for their transition to secondary school and think about the situations they might face and positive ways to deal with new experiences.
The young people learn to better express themselves, build their confidence and develop soft skills, such as effective communication, presentation, decision-making, taking responsibility and making a commitment.
Participants play an active role in having the ‘power to change’ negative outcomes in a safe environment, acting as observers and critical thinkers with their peers. Themes addressed in the sessions include bullying, online safety, friendships, identity and responsibilities.
