Engaging Activities that Encourage Understanding and Acceptance

EqualiTeach delivers workshops with young people on many different aspects of equality, diversity and inclusion.

Workshops are interactive, engaging and tailored to different age groups, abilities and learning needs. We work with primary, secondary, special schools and youth groups, colleges, pupil referral units and alternative provisions.

Fun and Interactive

All of our workshops include a variety of activities and discussion points to ensure that they are fun and engaging.

Workshop activities are designed to get young people thinking, reflecting and talking, building their confidence and supporting them to develop and share their ideas and opinions.

Inclusive and Safe

Our facilitators take time to build rapport and create a safe and inclusive environment for workshops to take place.

This is an important part of our workshops as it allows us to address controversial and emotive topics with young people in an environment where everyone is able to contribute without fear of judgement or being put into an unsafe position.

Tailored and Accessible

We liaise with schools in advance to ensure our resources are tailored to meet the needs of the young people we’ll be working with so all participants can access the learning.

We have a range of tried and tested tools and techniques for differentiating our resources and delivery, whether delivering to young people at a special school, to mixed ability groups at a mainstream school, or for pupils who have English as an Additional Language.

Inspiring and Empowering

Whilst our workshops are often covering topics which can feel heavy and emotive, we ensure our content focusses on equipping young people with skills to navigate these topics, building empathy, and empowering young people to have their voices heard and create positive change.

It was fun and gave everyone a chance to speak their opinions.

Workshop Delivery Formats

Face-to-Face Visits

Workshops are delivered with class groups in classrooms, and a teacher must be present at all times. We work with you to schedule the sessions to suit your usual school timetable.

Our workshops have been adapted to suit Covid-safe delivery, with our facilitators taking additional safety measures to keep themselves and your school community safe. You can read our Coronavirus Risk Assessment (pdf) for face-to-face visits.

A selection of our equality and diversity workshops are available as pre-recorded videos. These are of the same quality and content as our visiting workshops, but come with the benefits of distance learning.

  • Video workshops narrated by our expert facilitators.
  • Clips and visuals to guide pupils through learning without the need for teacher input.
  • Activities and opportunities for reflection included.
  • Accompanying workbooks in hard copy or editable PDF digital format.

  • Pupils can complete workshops at a time that suits them.
  • Rewind when needed or pause and return to continue at another time.
  • Utilising YouTube hosting to ensure quality playback.

EqualiTeach can provide guidance to help you to support pupils with the logistics and content of the workshops. We are also on hand via telephone and email to provide further support when needed.
