Understanding Cancer Education Programme
A free presentation delivered to students.
The presentation lasts for 45- 60 minutes, is aimed at Year 10, 11 and above (it can be delivered to Year 9 too) and works best with large groups (such as whole year groups) but this is flexible.
Why do this?
To raise awareness of cancer and its potential impacts
Promote positive attitudes to health responsibility
Tackle rates of earlier diagnosis- each year approximately 2500 young people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK and this diagnosis is often delayed.
Teenage Cancer Trust want to give young people the necessary information to enable them to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing, but also ensure that they are “the next generation that isn’t afraid to talk about cancer”. To do this they believe young people need to have access to honest, accurate information and an opportunity to develop empathy, resilience and understanding.

The Teenage Cancer Trust also have a range of resources for secondary school pupils to learn more about cancer. The leaflet below provides further details.
