Working with adults

“ We have a generation of youngsters that really live vulnerable, dangerous lives. Leap enabled us to bring something to the borough that was quite unique. A way that allowed youngsters, in their own settings, to begin to explore what conflict actually meant to them.”

Sgt. Neil Standring, Enfield Police Sharing knowledge

As well as working directly with young people, Leap offers specialist training for frontline professionals.

The UK has a chronic skills gap on how to work effectively with young people in conflict with themselves and the other people in their lives. Leap helps to fill that gap by providing adults with the skills and knowledge they need to step in and change the course of a young person’s life.

Working in partnership with communities, police services, young people’s services, youth justice, schools and education services, community and mental health services and children’s services throughout the UK, we have reached 11,500 adults over the past three years, including more than 1,600 in 2010.

Our training helps police officers, teachers, youth workers and many others to handle conflict constructively, not only while working with young people, but also in their everyday lives. Like the young people themselves, adults go on their own journey of self-discovery.

What we offer

Leap offers seven main courses to help adults who work with young people, from teachers to youth workers to prison officers. As well as helping adults work more effectively with young people, our training helps adults examine their own motivations and frustrations – providing vital insight for conflict resolution.
