web headers2

Infobuzz provides a range of sessions designed to support the personal, social and health education of young people in schools, alternative provisions and colleges etc.

Infobuzz are able to utilise our diverse skill base to create a dynamic provision that sensitively addresses some of the difficult issues faced by adolescence today. Our sessions have received excellent feedback from both pupils and teachers who have been struggling to address these challenging topics.

Our group based work also provides an opportunity to identify individual ‘at risk’ young people and introduce them to the rest of our services.

Please find below a table of suggested sessions. These can be combined to create a series of workshops delivered over a longer period or can be delivered as standalone sessions. Please contact Infobuzz to discuss your requirements and we can create a bespoke package to suit your students.
