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. Please note that you must work in a school in Hartlepool, Stockton, Redcar or Middlesbrough to attend this event.
This training day will aim to provide teachers with a safe and non-judgmental environment to explore issues relating to racism. We know that racism is still an issue that many teachers have to deal with in schools; there is often uncertainty about how to deal with racist incidents, how to respond to language relating to ethnicity that is inappropriate and how to embed equality into the ethos of the school environment, this conference will offer practical activities and solutions to deal with these issues.
Schools are uniquely placed to provide young people with knowledge and skills to help them identify, resist & refute racism when they meet it. Young people are developing their value systems; it is during these formative years that discriminatory attitudes can be most readily challenged and prevented.
This training aims to:
• Explore the barriers to promoting equality and tackling racism
• Enable delegates to recognise racist incidents and explore how to respond to them most effectively
• Encourage participants to embed equality throughout the school environment
• Explore appropriate language relating to ethnicity
There will be a carousel of interactive workshops on the themes mentioned above.
Delegates will also have the opportunity to raise their own concerns, have these addressed and will leave with a variety of resources to assist them when back at school.
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.
