About RADAR


RADAR is Northern Ireland’s first fully interactive, safety and life skills education centre since it's opening in January 2016. It’s interactive, fun, and informative. RADAR gives young people a unique chance to explore dangerous situations in a risk free environment.  RADAR currently caters for three age groups:

  • Key Stage 2 (9 - 11 year olds)
  • Key Stage 4 (14 – 16 year olds)
  • Young Drivers (17 +)

Key Stage 2

Children will be introduced to a number of safety and life skill learning zones by a trained member of RADAR staff.  Children will spend 12 minutes in each learning zone and will focus on three key messages. RADAR has more than 20 learning zones for teachers and community group leaders to choose from, so we can tailor your tour to your needs.  Each child who visits RADAR will learn key skills that they need to keep themselves and their families safe.  For more detail, please click here.

In 2016, each child who visits RADAR will receive a free RADAR workbook. This allows for teachers and parents/guardians to continue learning with their child after their amazing day at RADAR.

Key Stage 4

Young people will spend between 30 and 90 minutes exploring key issues that affect them.  These include areas such as mental health, drug and alcohol awareness and e-safety.  The hard hitting and realistic nature of our learning zones ensure lasting messages.  A visit to RADAR is a must for young people looking to navigate through life’s challenges.
