Prevent in Practice 1st March 2017
Wednesday, 1 March 2017 from 09:30 to 16:30 (GMT)
Show Racism the Red Card is a leading anti-racism educational charity with extensive experience of delivering equality training. This FREE event is aimed at school teachers, leaders and educators across all key stages who have previously attended Show Racism the Red Card's Tackling Racism In The Workplace training day.
With new statutory duties placed on schools and educational settings under the Prevent Strategy (2015) to give ‘Due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’ many teachers and lecturers are looking for clarity, support and reassurance.
This training day will provide a safe, non judgmental environment to engage in practical workshops which will support them to fulfill the Prevent Duty.
Amongst a global climate of increasing conflict, unprecedented cuts to welfare and a consistent media and political rhetoric of fear and anti Muslim hatred, the Prevent agenda is not without controversy or opposition.
The conference will provide practical strategies and activities to help overcome the challenges, and become more comfortable with what the legislation means for schools and how it can be best implemented.
Celebrating its twentieth year, SRtRC has a breadth of relevant knowledge, experience and insight which will allow the successful engagement of members in critical, productive debate whilst also providing practical strategies and activities to help overcome the challenges presented by any new statutory duty.
This training aims teachers and educators to:
- Be better informed of their duties under the Prevent agenda and feel more equipped to fulfill them effectively.
- Have improved understanding of how hate can escalate and the push/pull factors that lead to extremist ideologies.
- Have explored practical ways to educate against extremism, embed critical thinking, promote ‘Fundamental British Values’ and considered strategies to stimulate and support conversations around controversial issues.
- Have gained greater knowledge about Islam enabling them to challenge common myths and misconceptions.
- Have more clarity about support available and the relevant referral pathways should they identify a young person who is vulnerable to extremist ideologies and groups.
PLEASE NOTE: This training day is a follow up session and intended only for those participants who have previously attended our training day on Tackling Racism and Promoting Equality.
When & Where
Show Racism the Red Card
Show Racism the Red Card is the UK’s anti-racism educational charity and was established in January 1996. The organisation utilises the high-profile status of football and football players to help tackle racism in society. The majority of the campaign’s output is the delivery of education to young people and adults in their schools, their workplaces and at events held in football stadiums. Across Britain, Show Racism the Red Card delivers training to more than 50,000 individuals per year.
In addition to the direct education of young people and adults, Show Racism the Red Card produces resources which help promote a message of understanding. Films featuring professional football players such as Thierry Henry, Samuel Eto’o and Ryan Giggs address a range of issues surrounding racism. The films help teachers and other training professionals to deliver training in their schools and workplaces. Each of the films is accompanied by an education pack containing lesson plans and activities for all ages.
Show Racism the Red Card works extensively across Great Britain and has offices in North East England, East England (also covering South East England and London), Scotland (Glasgow) and Wales (Cardiff). In Scotland and Wales, the campaign also focuses on tackling racism within professional and grass-roots football.
