Event description

Description

There has been an unprecedented increase in specific Muslim hate crime of 200% since 2015 (The Huffington post, 2015) as well as a 57% increase in Islamophobic attacks on the public reported to the police (The guardian, 2016) since the Brexit vote. With the British Muslim population totaling 2.1 million it is imperative both as a duty under The Equality Act (2010) and a Public Sector Equality Duty PSED for schools, colleges and Universities to combat such issues. Public institutions therefore need to ensure that measures are in place, staff are suitably trained and students are safe from such concerns.

This course aims to address these issues. It will be led by a qualified Imam who has studied at a traditional British Islamic seminary with experience of chaplaincy at British schools, colleges or Universities. Being WRAP accredited this practical experience is essential for successful discussion and reflection during the course. The course will establish the definition of Islamophobia and locate it within its current British context. Forms of Islamphobia within educational establishments will also be explored and the phenomena will be grounded within current legislative and policy frameworks. The course will present a three-pronged model that educational establishments can practically adopt to ensure that they have conducive and safe learning environments where value, respect and tolerance are upheld for all. The course will establish inter-agency collaboration as well as third party engagement as viable tools to tackle Islamophobia and will further consider practical issues that could fuel unnecessary friction if not handled sensitively such as Muslim dress, worship and prayer facilities. Constructive methods to adopt will be suggested in order to ensure inclusion when dealing with such sensitive issues. Through the use of innovative case studies modeled on real life scenarios, delegates will be able to apply the theory they have learnt to their front line roles.
