“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)
