Global Learning Programme Wales

Safe Havens Training Resources

The Global Learning Programme-Wales has been working with approved providers – Show Racism the Red Card, Martin Pollard of CEWC and Gill Miller, International Development Studies, University of Chester - as well as with local authorities to organise the “Safe Havens and New Challenges?” conferences.  These free events are designed to improve teachers’ knowledge and understanding of population movements including refugees and asylum seekers, empower teachers to tackle prejudice and racism, highlight relevant resources, and share effective practice from GLP-W schools.  

The conferences are relevant to teachers from all schools, regardless of whether they currently have pupils who are refugees, asylum seekers or migrants.

02 November, 2016 - Parc Y Scarlets, Llanelli

These events have been very well received by all those attending. Here are just a few of their comments:

This course was excellent and has provided me with additional ideas and materials to use / adapt with my pupils in class.

The event has increased my knowledge and clarified misconceptions. I think that I am better informed to explain issues that may arise.

It will help me to discuss sensitive issues effectively, discuss misconceptions, and help with social and emotional needs of the pupils.

I have a better understanding of the issues faced by refugees and a greater empathy. Also ideas for dealing with issues surrounding racism.
