Practical approaches to tackling Islamophobia in schools, colleges, universities and workbased learning.
Since the Brexit vote, there has been an unprecedented increase in specific Muslim hate crime of 200% since 2015 (The Huffington post, 2015) as well as a 57% increase in Islamophobic attacks on the public reported to the police (The Guardian, 7 Sep 2016).
With the British Muslim population totalling 2.1 million it is imperative both as a duty under The Equality Act (2010) and a Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) for public bodies, schools, colleges and universities to combat such issues.
Organisations with the PSED therefore, need to ensure that robust measures are in place, staff are suitably trained and students act responsibly and are safe from such concerns.
This course aims to address these issues. It will be led by a qualified Imam who has studied at a traditional British Islamic seminary with experience of chaplaincy at British schools, colleges and universities.
This practical experience is essential for successful discussion and reflection during the sessions and workshops. The course will establish the definition of Islamophobia and locate it within its current British context.
Forms of Islamophobia within educational establishments will also be explored and the phenomena will be grounded within current legislative and policy frameworks.
The course will present a three-pronged model that educational establishments can practically adopt to ensure that they have conducive and safe learning environments where value, respect and tolerance are upheld for all.
The course will establish inter-agency collaboration as well as third party engagement as viable tools to tackle Islamophobia and will further consider practical issues that could fuel unnecessary friction if not handled sensitively such as Muslim dress, worship and prayer facilities.
Good practice methods to adopt will be suggested to ensure inclusion when dealing with such sensitive issues. Through the use of innovative case studies modelled on real life scenarios, delegates will be able to apply the theory they have learnt to their front-line roles.
By the end of the course delegates will:
The course cost is £395. This includes lunch, refreshments and course pack to take away
