SRtRC North East Region: Developing Your Anti-Racist Teaching Practice.
Our team held our first anti-racism CPD day for teachers in the North East at the end of March and it was a real success! We invited teachers and educators from across the region to take part in a day full of important discussions.
Our aim was to create a safe environment for teachers from a variety of educational settings to share ideas, tackle difficult conversations and re-imagine current curriculum to become more inclusive and antiracist.
We understand how powerful knowledge is and want teachers to become more confident in anti-racism enabling them to thrive in their professions too. We hope that this will be the first of many events bringing educators from across the region together to share best practice and create progressive, inclusive and safer learning environments for young people.
100% of participants who filled in our post training survey said that:
- They felt safe to contribute to the session.
- The course content was beneficial and has given them practical tools to take forward in their educational setting.
- Their knowledge of unconscious bias and privilege had improved.
- They feel confident going forward to have difficult conversations with colleagues and students.
100% rated our course facilitators as excellent.
