Teacher training free in Manchester

January 11, 2016 | Nick Taylor

Teacher training – there is an opportunity for Primary School teachers in Manchester to receive free teacher training.  The event takes place on 29th January, from 9.00 – 5.00, at the Methodist Central Buildings, Central Hall, Oldham Street, Manchester UK, M1 1JQ.

Opportunity for Manchester teachers

Responding to demand from Manchester teachers, we have been working with over the past few years on matters relating to cohesion and the PREVENT agenda –the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace has developed a bespoke teacher training programme, ‘Holding Difficult Conversations,’ to help teachers tackle such topics in the classroom.

The programme is specifically designed to help support the Ofsted and government requirement around building resilience. It takes place on one day and seeks to build the confidence and abilities of teachers to examine ‘difficult’ topics and behaviours as well as to bolster ideas on how to develop a curriculum to achieve resilience.

The course date is 29th January 2016 and whilst we are encouraging participation from across the city – places are not limited per school but are limited.

The courses are provided free of charge with the support of Manchester City Council. The first course will take place on Friday 29th January 2016 and as places are limited, you should book as soon as possible.

This training is for Manchester teachers and educators who work with pupils at Primary School age.

It will take place at the Methodist Central Buildings, Central Hall, Oldham Street, Manchester UK, M1 1JQ, 9.00am – 5.00pm, on Friday 29th January.

The deadline for registration is Monday 18th January for this first course; please register your interest at commissions@foundation4peace.org
