The Primary School programme covers seven issues and a bonus course which affect young people in society today. Dare to be...® is accredited by OCN Credit4Learning resulting in participants receiving accreditations on completion of each course. Our vision is to provide secure, creative and empowering learning opportunities to support young people. This is underpinned by our commitment to carry out our work within a strong ethical framework of social justice, self-determination, participation and reflective practice intended to promote equality of opportunity and to recognise diversity.
The Primary School dare to be… workshops focus on important subject that affect children in a daily basis. We aim to support and enhance the learning process through education, physical and creative activity. Dance is an excellent engagement tool and our primary aims are to engage with, support, raise awareness and nurture talent in young people to help them to reach their full potential. Many are under enormous pressure to conform to peer groups or media influences, this can cause young people to do things they would not normally do such as promote hatred, smoke, alcohol, participate in youth disorder or crime.
