Understanding Humanism

Training

Teacher Training

We deliver teacher training about humanism to help with subject knowledge and practical ideas for the classroom. We can offer training as part of initial teacher training (ITT) and for continued professional development (CPD).

We regularly host our own training sessions, which teachers and subject leaders can sign up to individually (see below for upcoming dates). We can also arrange bespoke training sessions for your school, trust, university, or organisation.

 

‘Some of the most useful training I have ever been on. So many practical ideas.’
Samantha Kennedy, KS2 teacher and RE coordinator

‘Absolutely brilliant! Best training I’ve had. Extremely useful practical examples of use in the class with good age range and superb speaker.’
Anna Crosby, KS1/2 teacher and RE Curriculum Lead for North Lincolnshire

‘This session has been really fantastic, thank you! I feel I have come out understanding humanism a lot more as even I sometimes struggled to distinguish it from atheism.’
Helena Moore, KS3-5 RS teacher

Faith to Faithless apostasy and safeguarding training

Does your school understand the unique issues faced by some young people who leave a religion? Can you offer them the support they need?

Young people leaving religion may face exclusions, shaming, and isolation. Some risk homelessness, violence, psychological abuse, and discrimination. Working with apostates, Faith to Faithless has developed an in-depth training programme for organisations who may come into contact with apostates, including schools.

The training includes awareness of the most common issues faced by apostates, referrals to relevant organisations that can help, language and helpful/unhelpful ways to talk about apostasy, and safeguarding implications specific to your practice.

For more information click here or contact Faith to Faithless on training@faithtofaithless.com or 020 7324 3060.
