‘Champions for Change’ School Accreditation Scheme
Our ‘Champions for Change’ accreditation scheme provides, an exciting opportunity for schools to celebrate their anti-sectarianism work and have best practice recognised.
It was launched at Stonelaw High School in Rutherglen in October 2011 and this short film was made to mark the occasion:
It provides a framework for developing work in schools and support for staff, pupils and parents in their efforts to create a more tolerant Scotland.
Accreditation is assessed across eight areas which seek to promote a holistic approach to tackling sectarianism across a school community.
We will assist any school looking to take part by:
- Supporting their anti-sectarianism work
- providing workshops free of charge
- evaluating work throughout the school year
- providing awards and certificates to schools who achieve either ‘ Highly Commended’ or ‘Full Accreditation’ status
To find out how your school can take part please e-mail us at email@example.com or call 0141 559-5008
‘Beyond Religion and Belief’ Workplace Project
Sectarianism in Scotland goes far beyond the football terraces and can be found in our homes, communities and workplaces. Indeed, over recent years we have received a growing number of requests for advice and assistance from employers and staff, across a range of professions.
To address this we have created the ‘Beyond Religion and Belief’ Training Package .
The programme, which can be delivered free of charge, has been developed and piloted over recent years in partnership with the Scottish Government, the STUC and several public and private sector employers.
The package provides organisations with a framework to address sectarianism in the workplace and includes advice on policy and procedure, awareness raising workshops and a line management development module. The package can be tailored to your needs and we hope you can join us in sending out the message that sectarianism has no place in a 21st century workplace.
For further information on how your workplace can participate please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office on 0141 559 5008.
Both these projects are supported by the Scottish Government.
