The KiVa school-based Anti-bullying programme, delivered by teachers, both prevents bullying and tackles bullying incidents effectively. The programme has been developed by the University of Turku, Finland and is used in 90% of comprehensive schools in Finland. There is growing evidence of its effectiveness both in the UK and Finland. The programme is currently available for Key Stage 2 pupils and covers approximately 50% of the English and Welsh PSE curricula. CEIT is the only licenced training organisation for the KiVa programme in the UK.

Please see the Centre for Evidence Based Early Intervention for more information about KiVa for the programmes offered.
