Teacher from West Lothian
Show Racism the Red Card and West Lothian Council continue their successful two-year partnership by hosting a teacher training event at The James Young High School in Livingston.
Forty five primary and secondary teaching professionals, support staff and campus police Officers attended the event in Tackling Racism and Promoting Race Equality on Friday 15th February where they had the opportunity to take part in a range of workshops in Recognising and Responding to Racist Incidents, How to Embed Race Equality within the Curriculum and Using Show Racism the Red Card anti-racism Educational Resources.
One West Lothian Teacher said “It was a very informative day, the workshops were very good and I found it most useful to get the chance to discuss race equality issues with other colleagues”
Dee Kinning, Education Coordinator for Show Racism the Red Card said “West Lothian are an extremely progressive authority and the partnership we currently have with the council is an example of best practice for the Campaign. The most inspiring thing about these teacher training days is that it creates an opportunity where those who support our young people in school, from across the authority, can come together and share ideas and examples of the good work that is happening within many different schools in the area. I look forward to a continuing positive relationship with West Lothian in the future”
A programme of Educational workshops in schools tackling the issue of sectarianism and religious prejudice continues in the current school year, complimented by teacher training twilights.
