What is high quality practical safety education?
High Quality Practical Safety Education (HQPSE) seeks to go beyond the delivery of knowledge, understanding and skills to help children to develop risk competence, appropriate for the age (or developmental stage) of the child. HQPSE should be empowering for the child and help to develop resilience as part of their overall wellbeing. It should be relevant to the child, but also based on evidence of need and for effectiveness in the approach adopted.
