Gangs are very seriously intertwined with youth violence and criminality, and, with gang violence in the UK on the rise, it is essential we recognise the extent of the problem and understand how to safeguard our at-risk youth.


This course overs a comprehensive overview to the subject of gangs and youth violence, helping the learner to understand what gangs are and what they do, the part women and girls play in gangs, and what can be done to prevent gang recruitment.


The course contains three modules which give you a very comprehensive picture of the state of the UK today. It uses interactive screens, real-life cases, quotes, and scenarios, as well as thought-provoking questions designed to keep the learner engaged all the way through the course.

Methods for schools to handle at-risk and disruptive students

The role of the police, hospitals, and third sector groups in preventing gang recruitment and violence
