Nugent Education has discovered that in many cases, there are particular workshops and activities (along with arts workshop courses) that boys enjoy. They know this because they have found that when given the opportunity, these workshops are what they chose to do and subsequently engage with. Clients and schools (youth clubs etc) usually book a mixture of these or one for an individual workshop or even extended four to six session programmes.
The activities and workshops that boys chose and like doing include urban arts workshops. Urban arts workshops consist of break dancing which is a highly energised and individualistic dance style involving hand stands, power moves, spinning on their backs and so on. Other popular urban arts workshop that boys both enjoy and engage with includes graffiti art, graffiti mural art, rapping and beat-boxing, music production and DJ skills. We can use these activities for diversionary purposes or to embody anti knife crime, PHSE and other remits.
