The Religious Diversity and Anti-Discrimination project developed and managed a new training programme to address diversity and discrimination issues around religion. The programme included subject-specifi c modules on anti-Semitism and discrimination against muslims, and is designed to help enhance adult education in areas where information about religious diversity and discrimination is needed.
This project took on the development of a new training programme for adult educators addressing issues of religious diversity and anti-discrimination. It aims to provide them with the tools to transform obstacles presented by religious differences into opportunities.
The training programme is not an interfaith dialogue programme and does not teach various religious traditions. Rather, it is designed in the spirit of anti-prejudice and diversity education, recognising and respecting multicultural diversity. It confronts prejudice and discrimination and develops intercultural skills, bringing a topic to adult educators who may or may not have religious expertise or affiliation.
By working with educators that are active in community associations and by providing them with concrete educational tools, it is possible to raise awareness around issues of religious diversity. The training course has been developed as a means for facilitating dialogue and the exchange of experiences in areas of religion and culture.
Participants have the option to receive university-level credit for their work in the training programme through the University of Derby (Learning Through Work Scheme). These credits may also be used in the European Credit Transfer System.
