Facilitators on our innovative and successful Cooperative Games and Conflict Resolution Programme work with class groups in Primary Schools to promote a culture of peace and respect. Working through cooperative activities the programme aims to help primary school pupils enhance their skills to understand themselves and others, manage anger, improve communication and prevent and transform conflicts.
The training provides the foundation for 8 weeks volunteer in-service training (3 hours per week) to become a paid Facilitator on this programme. An Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre Certification is awarded upon successful completion of the training.
Open to teachers and youth workers in a variety of contexts interested in Nonviolence Education & Cooperative Games & Activities
Content: Theory, skills and practical approaches – team building activities, cooperative games and group dynamics, based on the Peace and Justice Centre facilitators’ experience of delivering Conflict Resolution Workshops at schools in Edinburgh.
