School presentations

In order to help raise awareness of Type 1 diabetes in schools, Diabetes UK Make the grade campaign presents a selection of free downloadable presentations for three audiences, allowing school staff, health care professionals or volunteers to provide up-to-date information to students or staff. They are based on the presentations developed by David Bailey, a former Head Teacher and volunteer for Diabetes UK.

  3. Presentation for school staff:  This presentation explains what Type 1 diabetes is, what you have to do to look after it and the support that all schools should be providing. It is aimed at school staff.
