Education

Designing, implementing and learning from educational and research projects will be vital if the VCPB is to achieve its aims. The Board works with students, educators, academics and other researchers to help generate the knowledge and insight needed to address the problem of violence in our communities.

Representation

As the VCPB lead for education,  Anthony works with parents to support them in keeping their child in school where they are  facing the risk of exclusion.  He offers guidance and signpost parents in need of emotional well-being support for their child and  engages with the Department for Education on policy related discussion where the needs of particular groups of learners  is at  risk of violent crime and exploitation.  
 
Anthony works with our partner organisations to support them in securing funding that targets the most vulnerable young people in London, with the intention of diverting them from crime, violence and entering the criminal justice system.

Education is the single most important commodity that any child can be afforded.  A good education is the master key which unlocks doors to future success and all forms of wealth. In a country where education remains free for every child under the age of 18, it is important we ensure our children can take full advantage of their right to learn.

Data shows that schoolchildren were permanently excluded on 7,900 occasions in 2017-18, compared to 7,700 in 2016-17 – a rise of 3 per cent. This is equivalent to around 42 children a day having their education taken away from them.

Solutions are easily achieved when we work together as a team; I will work with other VCPB leads to pool our resources and expertise to influence positive change for all members of our community.

Our Commitment

The Institute for Global City Policing (IGCP), based within the University College London Jill Dando Institute for Security and Crime Science, is currently our primary academic contact. However, the VCPB is interested in speaking to any academic body which can contribute to the aims of the Board.

Videos for discussion

VCPB Film Vignettes

The VCPB are happy to present the following vignettes taken from the Violent Crime Prevention video by Middlesex University “Stand With The VCPB”.  They last approximately 1.5 to 2 minutes each and can form the basis of some very rich and imaginative discussions about the reasons not to become involved in crime.
