Cultural awareness for educators – Part 1
++REGISTRATION NEEDED – scroll down ++
This session is the first of a three-part Learning Together seminar for educators working with children in early years settings and in primary schools. The first session will start a conversation on cultural competency. Teachers will learn about the notion of culture as experiences, knowledge, beliefs, and values that affect the lives of everyone in the school environment. The training will focus on the R.A.C.E approach, which involves the following:
R Recognise your own biases, ideas, and stereotypes of cultures that are different from your own.
A Admit/Acknowledge that there are differences in the treatment of people based on their appearance.
C Commit to being a part of the change that is needed in seeing that people are treated fairly.
E Educate yourself and others on cultural differences to gain more understanding.
All sessions are interactive and participants are encouraged to share their experiences and knowledge.
+ We aim to create a safe space for attendees to share their experiences and for this reason, we will not be recording this webinar +
