SRtRC and NUT Cymru work together to deliver report into racism in Welsh schools
This initiative is massively important for our charity in Wales. The findings will help inform our future work in classrooms, at conferences and in the debating chamber of the Senedd. We know that teachers across Wales do an amazing job with our young people, and this research will help us to tailor our work and to focus on their needs.

Show Racism the Red Card and Wales’ biggest teaching union have joined forces to discover the current Anti-Racism provision in Welsh Schools.
The ‘One Goal’ project is a joint initiative between the NUT and SRtRC, and it is hoped that the research will help fund further areas of work both in the classroom and at teacher training events for the charity.
NUT Cymru will canvass the opinions of all of their members across Wales over the next few months with findings released as a report early in 2013.
It is another step forward in an increasingly strong partnership between SRtRC and the teaching union, who already work together to deliver training to 75% of all final year teaching students across Wales each year.
Stuart Williams, Principal Officer for the NUT in Wales, said: "This research is vital if we are to ensure that every new and existing teacher in Wales receives the essential training required to deal with racism effectively within our schools."
The questionnaire will cover a number of pertinent issues that teachers face day in day out. For example which terms are acceptable, the training needs and confidence of teachers and the level of anti racism work that is undertaken in schools.
The questionnaire is open to all teachers across Wales and will only take a few minutes of your time to fill out. Please click HERE to contribute.
