Holding Difficult Conversations (Liverpool Primary School Teachers)

Extreme group’s show no signs of abating in their keenness to recruit our young people. The trusting relationships that teachers have with young people can be key to supporting the development of critical thinking and approaches that help build resilience. The PREVENT DUTY: the obligation on statutory bodies to prevent people becoming drawn into extremism, places significant obligations on schools. There is a need for many frontline staff to acquire the awareness, skills, knowledge, and confidence to ensure that they can spot signs of concern and vulnerability.

There is a need for many frontline teachers to acquire the awareness, skills, knowledge, and confidence to ensure that they can spot signs of concern and vulnerability. Importantly, however, there is also a need to build and further develop resilience. This course will help teachers to challenge prejudice constructively, counter extreme ideas and narratives by broadening perspectives, and provide alternatives to the persuasive narratives that can appeal to our young people.

The Foundation for Peace has been working in schools, with teachers and communities for 20 years on Prevention and has developed education resources across the UK, Canada and Europe. The programme draws on the significant experience and a strong curriculum developed to help create safe environments for difficult conversations with an emphasis on conflict resolution approaches to dialogue and discourse. Our philosophy is that conflict sensitive approaches to tackling ‘difficult issues’ at the earliest stages is key to prevention and can help truly transform the classroom keeping young people safe. This is what informs this programme.
