PC Simon Selby, Avon and Somerset schools and education strategy officer, was in today talking to my Yr 10 public services group about the roles and functions of the Police Service.
Delivery of the session was excellent. PC Selby encouraged boys to ask as many questions as possible. The boys engaged really well.
Breaking down barriers and improving communication between the Police and different groups within society (in this case, young people).
This session follows a similar session taken by Major Norris from the British Army last term.
I could have (and have had) delivered similar units on my own, but in my experience, inviting guest speakers to come in to schools and deliver with specialist knowledge and experience is so much more beneficial.
