About the project
Unacceptable behaviour in the classroom, such as racism, can be difficult to address, and many students will look to their teacher to model the right approach. Left inadequately addressed, unacceptable behaviour makes the teaching space feel unsafe, negatively impacting the learning, social experience, sense of inclusion, and wellbeing of both staff and students.
This project aims to create a leadership resource to build confidence, knowledge, and skills to enable those that teach to use Active Bystander principles to address unacceptable behaviour in the teaching space to create a safe, engaged, inclusive learning experience.
