This free half-day seminar aims to support EIS members in their provision of Holocaust Education, which the EIS believes should be embedded as a key feature of the Curriculum for Excellence, as one means of delivering the inclusive education system and society we wish to see.

We oppose racism and all forms of prejudice; we want educational establishments to be safe, inclusive environments for all children, young people and staff. Holocaust Education can play an important part in bringing that about.

 

 

We are delighted to have three EIS members on the programme for the morning, who will share their experiences of delivering Holocaust Education:

 

  • Kimberley Vallance St. Thomas Aquinas Secondary School, Glasgow

  • John Naples-Campbell Faculty Head of Expressive Arts, Aberdeen City Council

  • Nadia Robertson Graeme High School, Falkirk, (TBC)

 

A new EIS Briefing Paper on Holocaust Education sets out the EIS position and provides examples of good practice from across Scotland. Delegates will be provided with a copy at the event.
