Introduction

The “Celebrating Global Children” programme delivers a range of training opportunities reflective of work carried out in the area of working with a diversity of cultures. The programme continues to be developed through the evaluation of participants. Each time it is delivered new sessions are added and the current issues addressed.

Course Content

The programme is made up of four, 6-hour sessions. Each session is a mixture of theory, practical and discussion workshops. This ensures the delegates become actively involved whenever possible. They are also invited to take the lead during some sessions, reflecting on their current practice.

The delivery is set up to suit the need of the delegates attending. The sessions can be offered during the day in twilight or evening sessions. We suggest a mixture, which will enable the delegates to attend the majority, if not all of the sessions.
