JustUs 'Taster' Workshop Goes Down Really Well
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.
The taster workshops enabled teachers and pupils alike to participate in an hour-long exploration of JustUs. Both sets of participants were able to engage with a series of questions and exercises linked to aspects of the programme, namely to its Legacy, Foreign Nationals and Sexual Orientation modules.
After completing the workshops all of the young people involved were given participant assessment sheets to record feedback on their level of interest in the programme's subject matter.
Please see the chart image above which summarises the responses into a 'Level of Interest Spectrum' for both workshops.
