Educating the Heart 27 February 2020

Educating the Heart supports teachers as they shape our students to become people our world needs most; compassionate, active citizens who can engage with global issues and who have the knowledge, skills, emotional intelligence and creativity needed to create a fair and sustainable world.

Educating the heart is a two–day, fully funded, accredited, training programme taking place in the following areas:

Sligo: 19th & 26th March

Belfast: 1st & 2nd April

Kildare: 29th & 30th April

The Programme also comes with an adaptable, 12 lesson unit of work– giving teachers new methods, confidence and lesson ideas to engage young people in international development issues and global justice issues.

Educating the Heart directly links to the NI & ROI curriculum, complementing initiatives such as Eco–Schools, Green Schools, Rights Respecting Schools and various policies like Shared Education and Learning Leaders. It has opportunities for school recognition through our Compassionate Schools Award and has been developed in consultation with DENI, CCEA and the Education Authority.
