Prevent - Radicalisation cards

(0)
An activity for learners to discuss different signs and risks of radicalisation. They can discuss which ones they think are signs of it, and which are not. All the cards can either be a sign of radicalisation or not. They could be set a task to roleplay a scenario with some of the cards, or brainstorm in groups, other reasons for this change of behaviour. The end goal should be that the learners have an idea of what Prevent is for and to recognise signs of radicalisation. They should know the procedure within your establishment for reporting concerns.

Progress Tutor Group Attendance Tracker

Progress Tutor Group Attendance Tracker

(0)
I designed this to record week by week attendance for individual learners and the overall classes, enabling me to flag any issues with learners, and to compare to previous years. The spreadsheet is colour coded to show increases and decreases in attendance for each learner. I have included a 2 page instruction on how to use the spreadsheet and the chart, and how to personalise it for your courses/groups. There is also instructions on how to connect the learner to their page on EBS/ProMonitor or whatever software you use which contains their contact details/profile etc. I use this spreadsheet as my ‘desktop’, using it to navigate to different systems and to compile reports for area review meetings etc.

The customer cards have a scenario that the customer needs sorting. The staff card has information to set the background/attitude of the staff. Any staff card can be put with any customer card, so there are numerous combinations that can be used. These can be used to role play a scenario, where the learners can then feedback on their experiences.

Communication activity describe picture 6 pictures

(0)
These are 6 pictures i designed for students to describe to each other. They can sit back to back or facing each other as long as the picture is hidden. The student holding the image must describe it to the other student who must then draw as instructed. They must not use words to describe the item, like “boat” or “tree”, but rather describe lines and shapes. These can also be used for team working activity, where one person describes it to a group of people, who must between themselves, draw the image - this means learners discuss among themselves where they think lines should go, they might delegate one person to do one stage each, or elect someone to draw with others guiding.
