We delivered a range of workshops as part of the Global Learning Programme in Wales.
The Global Learning Programme Wales (GLP-W) brings together a national network of schools, committed to delivering high quality teaching and learning about development and global issues – such as poverty, inequality and interdependence – at Key Stages 2 and 3.
Through local networks teachers take part in global learning communities - sharing ideas, expertise and resources. Schools registered with the GLP-W also have access to global learning resources and opportunities for professional development.
We have been a training provider for the program over the last two years that has seen us deliver teacher training sessions to schools across Wales.
As part of the program GLP-W has been delivering a range of 'Safe Havens' conferences, which we have been delivering a range of workshops within the days program.
The most recent conference was held in Cardiff where Campaign Coordinator Jason Webber attended.
We delivered two workshops to teachers and support staff which one was aimed at recognising and challenging unconscious prejudice and the second recognising, dealing with and reporting racism in school.
Jason Webber said 'The Safe Havens conferences has been a great opportunity for teacher to take part in a range of workshops around Global Learning and equality. From our recent research we know that teachers lack confidence and understanding of dealing with racism in school along with the process of reporting incidents. These sessions are vital for teachers to be able to address any issues that arise and to develop a whole school approach in challenging negative attitudes and stereotypes.'
We will be continuing to work in partnership with GLP-W over the coming academic year.
