alQaws Completes Second Educational Program for Teachers in Shefa-amr

alQaws recently completed a thirty-hour educational training course entitled "Concepts and Tools  in Sexual and Gender Diversity" at the Greek Catholic High School in Shefa-amr. Notably, this was the second time alQaws was asked to provide this training module in Shefa-amr, after strong feedback from the initial trainings.  This program was specially designed to engage teachers and to address key issues they face while teaching.  alQaws trainers provided information about sexual and gender diversity and led discussion about the manifestation of these issues in Palestinian high schools today. The session primarily focused on the role of the professional educator in dealing with students of varying sexual and gender identities and worked to enhance educators' skills in providing safe spaces. The training was developed in partnership with the educational staff at the school and Training Team at alQaws to ensure the specific needs of the school and the educators remained a clear focus throughout the sessions.

The teachers and the educational staff at the school offered strong, positive feedback to alQaws and emphasized the importance of developing new educational tools to offer professional educators guidance on sexual and gender diversity issues inside schools.
