Wales' September Round Up: A Month in Numbers

The Education team in Wales took the opportunity to upskill ourselves in the first part of the month, ready to be welcomed into schools in the second fortnight of September.

The month included:

31 workshops

62 hours of workshop activities

768 young people 

12 Primary schools  

1 Secondary school

4 Local Council areas

6 Youth Club sessions

1 Prison visit

1 Teacher training session

1 New starter

4 SRtRC staff training sessions

 

The month was also one of firsts for SRtRC Wales. Four team members travelled to Powys to run a cluster school carousel of sessions and activities, with a local councillor even popping by to participate in a workshop.

Alongside this, we began an exciting new partnership with Parc Prison, introducing our series of anti-racism workshops to the younger inmates that we will be working with.

Finally, we also kicked off our adult training with our first teacher training twilight of the academic year.

This is not your usual twilight. The session is fun, interactive but also delivers a serious message. The time just flies by! You challenge your own thinking and also gain teaching ideas to deliver sessions in the classroom that develop thinking skills among the pupils. You also have the confidence that you are delivering the ‘correct’ message around a difficult subject. A must for all schools.

It's going to be a good year!
