2nd Training Seminar in Spain
Unitary Platform against Gender Violence - Plataforma unitària contra les violències de gènere (PUCVG) implemented the 2nd training seminar for high school teachers in Barcelona (Spain) from 23rd January to 27th of February 2016.
The goal of the seminar was to raise awareness on issues related to gender stereotypes, gender-based violence and gender equality and build teachers capacities to implement the “GEAR against IPV” workshops with students in their high schools with the proper personal confidence and practical tools.
The training received the official validation from the Education Department of the Government of Catalonia which was a great achievement. Even though 29 teachers were accepted to be trained and they did their application trough this official process only 14 teachers were able to finish the whole training seminar due to school time organization limitations that emerged. The whole group was highly committed and motivated and 7 of them are implementing 12 awareness raising workshops for 251 students. The rest of the teachers expressed that they were very interested in implementation but due to school curricula organization they will do it by the next school year.
