The best teachers tailor the PSHE curriculum to prioritise specific problems facing youngsters in their own communities. Resources required to engage young people such as interactive technology, theatre group productions and workshops are expensive. This is where Lions can help.
Schools are assessed primarily on academic achievement and as a result Life Skills education, whilst recognised to be of vital importance for young people and society, is under-funded and given limited attention. Our Life Skills programme makes a great difference by providing funding for schools to buy the resources and services that they would otherwise be unable to afford.
We work closely with Herts for Learning PSHE & Citizenship Adviser, providing funding for her to deliver bespoke training, CPD, workshops and consultancy sessions to our schools.
We understand that there is a well-established correlation between health and educational achievement and provide support for our schools to participate in the Hertfordshire Healthy Schools Programme
