Teacher’s toolkit A resource for teachers

 

This toolkit is designed for all leaders and educators involved in education for Gypsy Traveller children. For generations Gypsy/Traveller children have faced barriers to education yet little progress had been made. Poor educational outcomes and experiences impact on employment opportunities, life experience and overall wellbeing.  This toolkit supports educators at all levels to consider their own roles as agents of positive change and it provides strategies for effective action.
