We recommend that you send a teacher to an Implementation Workshop. This will provide the opportunity to understand the concepts underpinning the Peer Support Program and to develop the skills to implement an effective Peer Support Program in your school. Resources are redeveloped regularly and you will get the opportunity to view these at a Workshop.
Come along to an Implementation Workshop. You will learn all about coordinating and implementing the Program. You will also have the opportunity to network with other schools at various stages of implementation. Some schools will have been using the Program for many years, some will be new to the process.
Whilst the philosopy and concepts underpinning the Program have not changed, there have been changes to the structure and resource material available. We ask schools to renew their training every 5 years in order to familiarise themselves with new developments. Alternatively it could be useful to send another teacher along so they can support the Peer Support Coordinator in their role. Some schools train staff every year.
You can contact the Education Consultant for your area for telephone consultancy or to arrange a free staff talk, student talk or parent talk (in the Sydney Metropolitan area in school hours). Interstate schools can access support through Skype or school visits if coordinated around a time when an Implementation Workshop is being held in your area.
Bullying is a complex issue and we recommend that schools have already had the Peer Support Program in their school for a period of time prior to considering the anti-bullying modules. This proactive process ensures an optimium environment for introducing the anti-bullying modules. Speak to our Education Consultants who will outline the implementation process.
