During the latter months of 2016, as part of its preparation to commence the strategic rollout of JustUs in the Autumn of 2017 GMT successfully delivered prototype ‘training the trainer’ programmes with a number of district councils across the north.
Over the past year (April 2015/16) the GMT team worked closely with a cohort of 20 teachers and youth workers, across multiple locations throughout Northern Ireland, in the piloting and seeding of this innovative approach to citizenship education.
On 9th and 10th February 2016, as a concluding element to Derry City & Strabane District Council's Prejudice Face On programme, GMT delivered two one hour 'Taster' Workshops to a total of 240 young people drawn from 14 schools in the council region.
JustUs and its Gaslight Media Trust (GMT) development team where heaped with praise at the launch of the programme's Seeding Delivery Phase (Friday 24th April 2015).
The JustUs Programme's second Training Workshop for teachers & youth workers wins another enthusiastic welcome.
