The Prodigals Online
The Prodigals Online has been produced to engage, educate and empower young people to confidently face the often confusing and complex challenges and opportunities of adult life.
Developed in partnership with the Lambeth Council, Lambeth Health and Wellbeing Partnership and Prodigals Education Trust, these comprehensive video and music resources combined together provide high quality learning opportunities to enable young people to understand the life skills that will enable them to progress and live as successful independent adults.
The resource features:
Film and contemporary music to act as learning stimulus
Provide curriculum mapping and lesson plans to stimulate group debate and discussions
Support materials for relevant inter-related themes that provide a unique learning continuum
Supporting user-friendly workshop activities to contribute to the promotion of personal development
The Prodigals Online resources can be used across the curriculum in a variety of contexts at Key stage 4 -5 and beyond. The issues that it features may cause students to become emotional and animated.
It is important to consider strategies for engaging all learners in the work safely and without loss of focus. The Prodigals Online materials are supported by teaching and learning resources designed to engage all classes in the learning process and experience.
This level of support is provided to encourage all teachers and youth work practitioners to use The Prodigals Online within their own teaching context and in a range of settings.
Because of the sensitive nature of some of the themes featured in The Prodigals Online resource, teachers are strongly advised to watch the film in its entirety before using the resources with students.
The recommended age range for these learning resources is 14 years and above.
