Pilot free resources for Reducing Intolerance and Promoting Social Cohesion

The Behavioural Insights Team is working with the Ministry of Housing, Communities, and Local Government to trial an innovative PSHE education initiative aimed at promoting social cohesion and are looking for schools to take part.

They are recruiting secondary schools to pilot evidence-based PSHE education materials focused on improving students’ well-being, sense-of-belonging, openness, and critical thinking. The lessons have been designed in collaboration with academics from Stanford, Yale and Oxford Universities and are being reviewed by the PSHE Association to ensure they reflect safe practice PSHE learning principles.

Applicants chosen to participate will benefit from free training to support delivery of the materials and coverage of costs to help schools engage with the project.

Visit the project website for more information about the trial. You can register your interest by emailing the Behavioural Insights Team at cohesion@bi.team or arrange a call directly with the team by clicking here. Applicants must be PSHE leads based in a secondary school in England. The trial will start in September 2019 and high levels of interest in this project are expected so would encourage prompt application to avoid disappointment.
