CAW is very excited to launch a Travelling Community Resource written by Annmarie Collins, a teacher and graduate of Trinity College Dublin and Marino Institute of Education. Annmarie understands first-hand, the ‘crucial role teachers play in shaping the lives of young people’ and hopes this resource will help fellow educators to create intercultural and inclusive educational experiences for all students. The Travelling Community Resource aims to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of Traveller Culture and Heritage.
The Irish Travelling community is one of the most marginalised communities in Ireland and the number of Travellers who progress to third-level education is just 1% of the community. This resource aims to support teachers’ around Ireland in shaping positive educational experiences for their students and to inspire, motivate and encourage students from all backgrounds to consider their course and career options.
Why listen to Annmarie speaking with Ryan Tubridy about the importance of children in minority groups being able to relate to the person at the head of the classroom classroom.
