Our next Safeguarding and Prejudice training is on 18th January 2020 – book now
Prejudice exists across society. Stereotypes and social norms affect how we perceive and treat other people, including children and young people. It prevents us from creating environments that are safe for disclosure, and from recognising harm and implementing appropriate responses. It hinders our ability to fulfil our role of safeguarding and protecting the children we work with. In order to overcome our own prejudices and manage our own bias, we must be able to confront these issues directly.
Our training will unpack some of these issues and challenge learners to think critically about the harm caused by different forms of prejudice. These discussions can be difficult, but they must happen in order to improve the experiences of children and young people we work with and our ability to safeguard them.
This three hour interactive training course will cover:
- The impact for minority ethnic, male and LGBT children
- Prevalence of racial bias
- Barriers to engagement
- Working well with marginalised communities
- Principles for working with young people
