This half day course is designed to equip participants with the relevant knowledge, skills and resources to deliver training and focus groups for staff, children and young people and parents and carers which will help ‘poverty proof’ your setting.
This training is for school staff, youthworkers and Lifelong Learning staff who are wishing to take a lead and supporting role on child poverty work in schools and community settings.
Over 20% of children in Edinburgh live in poverty and every ward in the city registers a child poverty rate of at least 10%. The 1 in 5: Raising Awareness of Child Poverty in Edinburgh project was set up in response to this to improve the understanding of the causes and impact of child poverty, and to begin to look at what changes schools and community settings could make to better support children from low-income families, especially in terms of reducing stigma and education related costs.
The course materials will help you to explore with staff, children and young people and parents and carers:
- The scale and impact of child poverty and related stigma
- How to review education related costs to ensure access for all
- Design and implement solutions to reduce poverty related stigma and exclusion
This training is for school staff, youthworkers and CLD staff who are wishing to take a lead and supporting role on child poverty work in schools and community settings.
Full materials for delivering training and focus group sessions and collating a school ‘Poverty Proofing Action Plan’ are distributed during the training.
The next Train the Trainer is at the Quaker Meeting House 9am-12.30pm.
