There are several main groups of travellers in the United Kingdom and they have, and still do, face a lot of racism and abuse.

This course will examine the different types of travelling communities in the UK and look at the difficulties they face. It will also cover the reasons why so many young children in these communities do not regularly attend a fixed school. It is important that Early Years practitioners provide an inclusive environment where children feel welcome, respected, and valued.

The learning objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. To know who travellers are
  2. To understand the Race Relations Act
  3. To know why travellers are disadvantaged
  4. To know what needs to happen to break down barriers
  5. To be aware of Traveller Education Support Services
  6. To know why some Traveller parents are reluctant to send their children to school
  7. To know what makes an inclusive school

This course ensures your practice is in line with the requirements of the Childcare Act 2006 (the Act), as amended by the Children and Families Act 2014. It will also support your continuous professional development and enable you to keep well informed and up-to-date with current practice.

Should you wish to discuss your training needs based on the children in your care, please call 0800 774 787.
