Our Teacher Training provides a combination of blended learning and/or face-to-face training sessions which ensure that teachers have the knowledge, skills and confidence required to deliver the Peace Prevails Programme in their own school. By completing this teacher training, the school will be licensed to deliver the programme as a whole school programme.
By the end of training participants will have gained:
- An understanding of the structure and contents of both programmes (5 – 7 yr and 8 – 11 yr)
- An insight into how the Peace Prevails Programme can fulfil areas of the curriculum
- Recognition of how the programme can be expanded into cross-curricular areas
- Confidence to deliver the programme
- A plan on how to implement this programme in the classroom, school and some thoughts on how to include families and the community
- Ideas on how to evaluate the programme
A school can choose either of the following options for Teacher Training:
Option 1: Blended Learning
5 x 1 hour sessions plus 1 x 1½ hour session and an optional final session, with each session containing a mixture of group discussions, online and individual work.
There must be a minimum of three teachers per school (less for very small schools).
