DARE Champion Training is £300.00 per day – Max 15 in Attendance

We offer DARE Champion Training courses to support those training, teaching, coaching and mentoring young people in schools and the community to deliver our DARE Active programme. The events accommodate a maximum of 15 staff and are scheduled for dates agreed with the commissioning organisation. The intended outcomes of the training courses are:

  • Be conversant with the content of the curricula and the learning outcomes for each session.
  • Demonstrate practical skills and theoretical knowledge of a variety of teaching methods to meet the needs of different learning styles and situations.
  • Possess and source adequate knowledge of drug facts and information to meet the needs of the curricula.

DARE Active is a resource for 11 to 15 year olds, designed for delivery in secondary schools or within community groups e.g. youth clubs, sport teams or group activities.

Its principle themes are Responsibility, Achievement and Aspiration. The programme takes a fresh approach and introduces the ‘Six Keys to Success’ developed by the British Athletes Commission as an integral part of the curriculum. Young people are encouraged to assess themselves against the Six Keys against a set of criteria.

The length of the DARE Champion Training course will range from 2 to 5 days dependent upon the experience and qualifications of those attending and will be negotiated with the commissioning organisation.  Workbooks to deliver the programme are available to purchase from Life Skills Education C.I.C. at a cost of £5 each and one is needed for each participant on the course.  All presentations, graduation certificates and facilitator lesson plans are included in the cost of the workbooks and are made available online to download.
