Building a community of practice around prevention (MWS 01)

Mentor Webinar Series, Session 1: We were joined by our Director of Programmes Simon Claridge to discuss the importance of building a community of practice around prevention.

The Department for Education recently announced one of their key priorities is to encourage the development of well-rounded young people with character, resilience and grit. Teachers, carers and practitioners working with children can all agree: an investment in young people is an investment in the future, and it’s up to us to support them and help them develop the skills they need for success.

Mentor is the UK’s leading voice in the field of prevention, bringing together the best in international scientific research and on-the-ground practice to develop evidence-based programmes as well as informational resources on drug and alcohol prevention for schools, carers and practitioners working with children and young people in formal and informal educational settings.
