UNIVERSAL VALUES: PROMOTING FUNDAMENTAL BRITISH VALUES COHESIVELY IN THE EA...
Wed 24 May 2017, 09:15 – 16:00 BST
Free training event for people working with children between 0 and 7 years old.
All Early Years and Foundation Stage settings have a duty to actively promote Fundamental British Values. In order for a setting to be rated outstanding, the promotion of equality, diversity and British values needs to be at the heart of the setting’s work (Ofsted, Early Years Inspection Handbook 2015)
EqualiTeach has been funded by Big Lottery Awards for All and is working in partnership with the NASUWT to host a series of free training event for people working with children between 0 and 7 years old. The aim of this event is to support settings to implement the requirement to promote Fundamental British Values in a holistic and cohesive fashion. Where support and guidance is not available, settings sometimes misinterpret the duty as an instruction to promote stereotypical ideas of what it means to be British, which can inadvertently lead to alienation and division.
These training events will ensure that those working in the early years are equipped with knowledge and skills to carry out values education in an inclusive fashion, and embed this throughout their settings, enabling them to harness the requirement to create inclusive settings where all children are able to thrive.
After attending the training, participants will:
Understand the requirement to promote Fundamental British Values and how this fits with duties under the Equality Act 2010 and the Prevent duty.
Considered what constitutes good practice in delivering values education for young children and how to avoid potentially harmful approaches
Explored how good practice around Fundamental British Values can strengthen existing work to safeguard children and improve behaviour, safety and wellbeing
Looked at ways in which the Fundamental British Values of democracy, individual liberty, rule of law and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different religions and beliefs can be embedded throughout the setting in a cohesive fashion
These events will provide a safe space in which people are able to raise concerns in a non- judgemental, non-confrontational, open and honest environment, ensuring that everybody feels able to contribute and knows that their opinion will be treated with respect. Learning will take place through a series of interactive and engaging workshops, with lots of small group activities and whole group discussions, providing the opportunity for people to learn from each other as well as from the facilitators.
All participants will leave with a pack of resources to support them back in their settings.

Feedback from previous events:
This session was so well planned and thought-through. We were challenged and considered new approaches. I am looking forward to implementing the ideas developed during the day.
Interactive, respectful, supportive, memorable, calm, friendly, fun and productive!
I found this training very useful and I've learned a lot. It gave me lots of ideas about how to support all of the children that I work with. Thank you.
Last night over dinner I had the whole family having in-depth discussions about what I had learnt. Your training seems to have left a great impact on me and I find myself discussing these points often and looking up further information on inequality and the adverse effect this can have on the younger generations.:
