Transition Year Workshops

TY-friends

Transition Year Law Workshops can be run over:

• 2 hour workshops
• 4 hour workshop
• 5 hour workshops with mock trial

We cater for individual class sizes and can also accommodate larger groups.

We undertake to work parallel with individual school requirements to design and develop workshops that respond to the needs of each transition year group.

LawEd is today one of the premier providers of transition year law workshops having worked now with thousands of students nationwide. We have an exemplary record on the people side of the profession as educators, trainers and content makers.

Year after year we return to the same schools as our testimonials speak for themselves

Instructional Methods & Course Materials

  • Online webinars
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Overhead Projector
  • Written notes and handouts
  • Case Studies
  • Role Plays
  • Workshops/Group work, discussions debates

All the above courses are delivered in a very interactive, teenager centred friendly manner. At all times we have an open floor for debate and viewpoints which leads to a very engaging and interactive day for all involved.

We believe through debate and open conversation students will gain a fuller understanding of the personal implications of their actions and behaviours as well as their rights.

Teenagers understanding and engaging with the law is our core objective.
