Zero Tolerance is offering more Under Pressure training days to youth workers who want to prevent abuse and exploitation in teen relationships.

We are looking for experienced trainers and youth work staff to join our network of Under Pressure trainers delivering the Under Pressure training with their staff and young people, ultimately working to prevent abuse and exploitation.

We welcome applications from those interested in acquiring these skills and resources, and delivering the Under Pressure training programme to other members of staff in their local area. 

The course involves:

  • Have experience of working with young people.

  • Under Pressure training resources for use with members of staff and young people to help prevent sexual exploitation.
  • Access to and support from the online Under Pressure Trainers network.
  • Training top up and call back days.

This training is an excellent opportunity to roll out a high quality course for your staff team and learning community, obtain a great set of resources for tackling abuse and exploitation in young people’s relationships in informal education, and make a real difference in the lives of the young people you work with.
