|For Catholic Members
With schools becoming increasingly culturally diverse, it is imperative for educators and school leaders to build their own intercultural competence. This PL is suited for school leaders, generalist teachers and language teachers who want to create an inclusive and supportive school environment based on respect and mutual understanding. This pilot workshop utilises a range of activities to promote intercultural dialogue among participants which can also be used in the classroom.
