About Stereo

Originally commissioned by the Avon & Somerset Criminal Justice Board to explore the journey of a 16 year-old boy through the Criminal Justice System, Arc's Stereo programme was first produced for schools in 2005.

Due to exceptional demand, Stereo returns to secondary schools this autumn as a powerful and effective new resource to support the teaching of National Curriculum Citizenship for Years 10 and 11. With particular reference to Unit 2 (Crime - young people and car crime) and Unit 3 (Challenging racism and discrimination) of the QCA Schemes of Work, the Stereo programme provides a challenging and engaging tool for stimulating debate amongst young people. The programme can also be used across other areas of the curriculum, including English, PSHE, Drama, RE and Social Sciences at both Key Stage 4 and in the Sixth Form.

The play, written by Clifford Oliver and directed by Carole Pluckrose, will be accompanied by workshops led by Arc's Associate Director Joss Bennathan.
