Designed to be used by educators Combat Hate is a unique and versatile education package that explores and encourages dialogue about contemporary challenges in our communities, in particular, issues related to the ‘far-right’, polarisation, hate, extremism, diversity and cohesion in the UK.
This unique educational resource is supported by training designed for teachers, education practitioners and others working with young people.
The training guides educators through the film and accompanying educational resource, fostering a confident approach to using the materials and the ability to train other teachers and students to use them. The training also enables those who have completed it to cascade the learning to colleagues and provides a space in which educators can come together to share best practice around integrating the resource and learning into their schools’ curricula and how to have meaningful conversations about the challenging issue of extremism, hate and polarisation with young people.
The versatility of the resource means that it can be facilitated either as a single day session, or spread across a term and integrated into complementary curricula such as social sciences (sociology, psychology etc.) political education, history, religious studies and personal, social, health, emotional (PSHE or citizenship).
Our aim is to equip educators with enthusiasm and confidence and a means of answering difficult questions through a structured learning resource.
