Helping teachers tackle racism through training

462 people have taken our online training.
In October and November 2016, our Education Development Worker Sara Hakim delivered Anti Racism training workshops to over 500 student teachers from St Pats DCU, Marino Institute of Education, Mary Immaculate College and also to Freobel College at NUI Maynooth.

Many of the students have taken the online teacher training course at http://training.theredcard.ie

The course takes the learner through:

  • How it happens
  • How it impacts
  • How to respond
  • Activities teachers or other educators can deliver in the classroom or PE hall to promote anti racism learning

It concludes with the learner writing their own statement about what they have learnt. During the course, they are encourage to keep notes, so as to ensure a good learning experience.  Below is just a flavour of the feedback we have received from the student teachers. Continue reading
