Myerscough foundation learners are the puppet masters of safeguarding

Thursday 11 Oct 2018

Myerscough College foundation learners have been learning the importance of safeguarding issues thanks to the use of an innovative puppet show. 

Steve Wright, of Routes Puppets, is a puppeteer and creative artist who works with young people across the UK on a variety of issue based projects. Steve delivers Prevent training, the government’s anti-terrorism programme, to Myerscough students by the innovative method of puppetry.

During his recent visit, Steve visited Foundation Learning and led a lively discussion about some important topics such as radicalisation, the ‘Run Hide Tell’ initiative, British values, equality & diversity and hate crime.

Nicola Dixon from Myerscough College’s foundation learning department, said: ‘’This is a unique approach to a hard to reach topic.

‘’Steve made us think about how we act and react to difficult situations. He also highlighted the importance of listening skills and keeping ourselves safe. It was a fabulous session that everyone enjoyed.

‘’Steve’s a good friend of Myerscough and has been here a number of times. The students love his interactive show.’’
