ICD’s Preventative Education Programme

Our ‘Preventative Education Programme’ provides students with the knowledge, understanding, skills and resilience needed to live successfully and positively in the modern world. It has been developed over many years and reflects the key aims within our College Vision. Carefully crafted lessons, workshops and assemblies, delivered by ICD staff and selected outside agencies, allow every student to know and understand their roles and responsibilities in feeling “welcome, safe and happy” as well as signposting the all-important support networks, relevant to each student’s age and experience.
