Exciting Training Opportunity: ‘Recognising Racism and Celebrating Diversity’

The Community Safety & Wellbeing Team and the Ethnic Minority & Traveller Achievement Service (EMTAS) are delighted to be offering further sessions of the popular interactive two-part online training course: ‘Recognising Racism and Celebrating Diversity’, in March 2021. 

The course is aimed at school leaders and teachers in primary or secondary settings.  It seeks to explore the concept of racism in its many forms and examines what work needs to be done in schools in order to promote equality and celebrate cultural diversity.

The first session, led by the Community Safety & Wellbeing Team, raises understanding of how racism impacts on our daily lives and looks at how this provides privileges for some whilst disadvantaging others.  It explores modern inequalities, sources of prejudice and the impacts this can have on identity. It also begins to explore the importance of challenging racism and what it means to be anti-racist.

The second session, led by EMTAS, sets out the legal and ethical framework for promoting equality and diversity in schools. It looks at what needs to be done to work towards race equality, at a whole-school and individual classroom level.  It also considers a range of approaches, strategies and resources that can be employed at to achieve these aims

Delegates will hear first-hand the lived experiences of students in West Sussex schools in the 21st century, as well as the views of parents from BAME communities about what schools can do to help them support their children and feel more involved in school life.
