The team travelled the length and breadth of Wales in February, delivering sessions in 12 out of the 22 local authorities.
This month, SRtRC Wales delivered in:
21 primary schools
2 secondary schools
4 special educational needs schools
5 football clubs
Working with a total of 1693 young people
February was also an exciting month for adult training. Education Worker Kate Mills and Campaign Coordinator Jason Webber delivered a two day course to trainee teachers from University of Wales Trinity St David, in partnership with the National Education Union. Participants were encouraged to reflect on their own attitudes and the impact they may have on their teaching practise, in the newly developed ‘considering unconscious bias’ session.
Jason also travelled further afield to participate in SRtRC Scotland’s Anti-Racism Showcase at Hampden Park. It was a great opportunity to work with the Scotland team, as well as to present his findings from the ‘Challenging racism in football’ project with the Football Association Wales.
It has been fantastic to continue to receive such support and engagement with the sessions, from children as young as six to the teachers of tomorrow. If February is anything to go by, the team are in for a fantastic rest of the year.
