For teachers

These #NotTheOne education resources are for use in a classroom setting.

Launched in South Wales in 2022, #NotTheOne aims to reduce youth knife crime by utilising expert evidence and insights to create messages that strongly resonate with young people.

These education resources are designed to help teachers better understand the issue and be more confident about engaging with young people.

The aim is to help educate and empower young people, making it clear that they will be safer without carrying a knife. It is a comprehensive toolkit designed to tackle knife crime through education, conversation and practical skill-building.

We encourage you to use these resources to create a safer and more aware environment for our young people.
