Trainers: EqualiTeach is a not-for-profit organisation providing high quality, interactive training and support on issues of equality, diversity and inclusion.  Our vision is an equal, inclusive and diverse society where everyone is valued and able to succeed.  For more information on EqualiTeach: https://www.equaliteach.co.uk/

The training will be delivered in a safe space where people are able to raise concerns and contribute knowing that their opinion will be treated with respect.

The training is interactive, provides plenty of opportunity for people to discuss issues and develop proactive approaches to create change. 
Participants are actively encouraged to bring forward questions and concerns which are addressed throughout the session. 
We recognise that people often have valuable expertise and experiences to share with others.  Participants are encouraged to bring scenarios and solutions for us to work together to develop these into best practice approaches for all.

The goal is to equip professionals to work with young people on controversial issues, supporting young people to become critical thinkers, allaying young people's fears, reducing prejudice, increasing cohesion and building young people's resilience to radicalisation.
