Together Programme: Introduction to Politics
19 January, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 4:50 pm GMT
An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, happening 6 times
Tutor Led Learning have created the unique Together Programme to help young teens build their resilience and confidence – an investment in an unknowable future.
Topics on Psychology and Mental Health will provide a host of information and resources which will help children develop self-awareness and self-care. Topics on Philosophy, Politics and Media will increase understanding of why the world is like it is and skills to interpret what’s going on behind the headlines.
The Together Programme is about developing understanding, compassion, resilience and confidence.
Together we can do anything.
