Part I Beyond Black History Month- Teaching Race and Equality in Citizenship CPD
This brand new three part CPD course has been designed to support teachers in promoting race equality in schools and teaching about the ongoing struggle for equality in society through Citizenship education. The course will be certificated for those teachers who complete all three sessions. It is possible to join for only one session if you prefer although it is advised that the two sessions on the curriculum are both attended.
Part I: Thursday 5th November: Race and Equality in School: Dealing with whole school issues through Citizenship
The issues of equality and race have been present for many years but due to recent events in the US, have become prominent once again in the media and society. It is natural for students to have questions and react to the images and stories that are being broadcast. The core values of Citizenship education promote equality and inclusion. These values need to be embedded in the culture and community of schools and require a whole school approach so that schools are a place where pupils learn about diversity in society, the struggle for equality and the importance of challenging all forms of discrimination including racism. Therefore the learning needs to take place across different subjects and in citizenship.
In this session a range of speakers will suggest ways to address issues of Race and Equality as a whole school approach and across the curriculum using a Citizenship lens with a mix of practical tools and teacher development on the topic.
