Stand Up! Online Workshops
Our Stand Up! project is currently taking bookings for the Spring term. If you would like more information about sessions, please click below.
“Stand up Education delivered an outstanding virtual workshop focused on Bullying and discrimination to 160 of our year 8 students at the end of January. The delivery of the workshop was extremely engaging and professional with its content aimed at the appropriate age and covering issues which the year 8 students feel important and necessary. I was anxious in terms of arranging and holding workshops in a virtual way with my year group due to these current uncertain times, but the organisation and communication was smooth and faultless. A huge thank you to Stand Up Education for a fantastic couple of mornings and I shall certainly be arranging more with you in the future” (Friern Barnet School – February 2021)
