Certificate in Building Capacity and Enhancing Leadership in Intercultural Understanding and Diversity

IT Carlow and the Faculty of Lifelong Learning, in partnership with Laois Education Centre, today launched a Certificate in Building Capacity and Enhancing Leadership in Intercultural Understanding and Diversity

(Mon. 28th February 2022)

Laois Education Centre has collaborated with The Faculty of Lifelong Learning at IT Carlow  to provide a Level 8 Certificate in Building Capacity and Enhancing Leadership in Intercultural Understanding and Diversity. The course is designed to support teachers, principals and others in the education sector in identifying and addressing human rights and equality issues as they relate to staff in the workplace as well as to members of the wider school community.

“Institute of Technology Carlow is delighted to build on our successful partnership with Laois Education Centre to provide our Certificate in Building Capacity and Enhancing Leadership in Intercultural Understanding and Diversity. This course, which will tie to participants’ practice, will support those working in primary and secondary education in this important area.”, commented David Denieffe, Registrar and Vice-President for Academic Affairs.

 “Laois Education Centre is delighted to work in partnership with IT Carlow and the Faculty of Lifelong Learning to deliver this exciting new course. It is a perfect fit for our Schools of Belonging project which supports our local schools in developing their capacity in the area of interculturalism. Our partnership with IT Carlow is of strategic importance to achieving the goals of this project and I believe this course will provide very valuable support to principals, teachers and those working in the broader field of education to increase their capacity to provide valuable leadership around interculturalism in their school communities.”, says Catherine Doolan, Director of Laois Education Centre. 

Schools of Belonging is part of the overall Community of Belonging project launched by the Laois Education Centre in conjunction with the Teaching Council of Ireland.  They adopted what is called the BEACONS model of engaging with School Communities that lead to the organisation of an event last November, attended by schools, with the aim of starting the conversation about interculturalism in the community. The result was the publication of a report that has become a roadmap for what can be achieved in this area. The project is spearheaded by the support centre's Director Catherine Doolan and its Vice-Chairperson, Liam O'Neill, former president of the GAA.

'The Faculty of Lifelong Learning and delighted to work in partnership with the Laois Education Centre to offer this Certificate in Building Capacity and Enhancing Intercultural Leadership and Diversity to teachers. The aim of this programme is to provide an educational space to support teachers to identify and address specific or multiple human rights and equality issues which are of direct relevance to their work in schools.”, commented Lindsay Malone, Deputy Head of the Faculty of Lifelong Learning.

The programme will have a blended delivery that includes class on Saturday 14th May onsite at Laois Education Centre from 9am to 4pm, followed by 10 Tuesday evening classes that will be delivered online starting 26th of April 7-10pm (please note change of dates)
