Prevent Duty: Practical Training Course For Teachers

15 Aug 2016

We are pleased to invite UK-based educators to apply for a place on a training course on Monday 10 October.

The next generation will shape the future, and they will do it in a world of relentless change and diversity. We must prepare this generation, giving them the skills and experience they need to navigate difference in a peaceful way.

The course will give practical guidance and tools to deliver safe spaces to educate and challenge. You will develop knowledge and confidence in helping young people to understand and discuss sensitive topics, and to learn a broad and balanced curriculum which prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of life.

You will have the opportunity to access resources and programmes that equip students with the knowledge, skills, and experiences they need to think critically about sensitive topics and issues; operate in a culture of respect and tolerance; and build resilience to harmful ideologies and narratives.

Training will be delivered by experts from our Generation Global education programme, in association with The Linking Network, and is free of charge. The course will take place in London. Support is available for transportation costs within the UK, and lunch will be provided.

Spaces are limited to 30, and one person per school may attend. We recommend that attendees consist of members of the senior leadership team leading on: the statutory Prevent duty; social, moral, cultural, spiritual and British values;  Citizenship, Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE); or Religious Education.

If you would like to attend, please register your interest by emailing info@tonyblairfaithfoundation.org with the subject "Generation Global training course" by Friday 30 September.

About Generation Global

The next generation will shape the future, and they will do it in a world of relentless change and diversity. Generation Global prepares this generation, giving them the skills and experience they need to navigate difference in a peaceful way.

Generation Global is a pioneering global education programme for 12-17 year olds. By providing global learning and dialogue opportunities, it helps young people to be resolute in the face of narratives that may feed into the development of violent extremist ideologies.

Devised by an international group of educational experts, advisers, and religious leaders, the programme provides opportunities for students to put critical thinking skills into practice through facilitated dialogue. Students learn about one other, and explore the roots of openness and diversity in their own cultural and religious traditions.

Generation Global reflects the needs of different school systems around the world, and is active in more than 20 countries, including in some of the world's most challenging regions.
