Teachers Training Seminars

2nd Training Seminar

On 31st October - 2nd November 2015 was successfully held the 2nd 3-day Training Seminar of Secondary Education Teachers in Greece. The Seminar was organized by the project’s coordinator (EAVN) and a total of 52 trainees attended the seminar that was held in Athens in "Acropolis Hill Hotel".

The aim of the Seminar was to raise trainees’ awareness on gender steretoypes, IPV and child abuse and neglect issues and build their capacity in order to be able to implement the “GEAR against IPV” Workshops with students at school. The Seminar besides the theoretical part included also a large practical part, conducted via a simulated workshop, with trainees adopting the role of a student. The Seminar offered trainees the oppportunity to:

  • assess, identify and challenge their gender stereotypes 
  • experience modeled activities “through students’ eyes”
  • increase their knowledge on gender equality, IPV, sexual violence (SV) and child abuse and neglect (CAN) issues
  • develop and exercise skills enabling them to a) design, implement and evaluate students’ Workshops, and b) identify, support and refer victims of violence (IPV/SV/CAN)

The trained teachers implemented awareness raising workshops with more than 400 students.  

Some teachers' quotes

What I learned, I learned it because I experienced it and not by taking notes
I had to think as a teenager and as a result I learned more about myself as adult
I was full of expectations and the seminar not only met them but also exceeded them
