Anti-Bullying Week

This week (16th to 20th November 2015) is Anti-Bullying week.
Making bullying everyone’s business is the aim of Welsh Government’s campaign this year.
They believe everyone should be empowered to address bullying.

‘Firstly everyone needs to be able to understand and identify bullying. All bullying behaviour usually has the following four features:
1. It is usually repetitive and persistent.
2. It is intentionally harmful.
3. It involves an imbalance of power, leaving someone feeling helpless to prevent it or put a stop to it.
4. It causes feelings of distress, fear, loneliness and lack of confidence in those who are at the receiving end.’

You can find some useful resources and further information that will help reinforce this message here: http://gov.wales/topics/educationandskills/schoolshome/wellbeing/antibullying/anti-bullying-week/?lang=en

Meic is a free confidential helpline for children and young people in Wales open 24 hours 7 days a week: https://meiccymru.org/

NHS Sight Tests for Traineeships

Please see details below regarding free NHS Sight Tests for Traineeships:

Individuals under the age of 19 who are undertaking a Welsh Government Traineeship are eligible for a free NHS Sight Test. The criteria for under 19 year olds is the same as those required for an NHS Sight Test – therefore if a person on the Welsh Government Traineeship programme is deemed to satisfy the eligibility for a sight test, they will also be deemed eligible for a voucher to meet or contribute to the cost of glasses/optical appliances.

You will note that satisfactory evidence for  those persons on Welsh Government Traineeships, with attendance of 21 hours or more a week, who require an eye test, is a letter from their Training Provider and/or an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) to confirm their Traineeship status.
