Training

Integration training seminar

Migration Awareness Training is a half day interactive session which explores inward and outward migration and the rights of migrant workers in Northern Ireland. It aims to dispel myths and provide practical information on issues relating to migration.

Ending Hate in Our Communities was adapted from The Centre for Prevention of Hate Crime in Maine USA to fit the context in Northern Ireland. It is a half day interactive workshop which aims to give participants an understanding of the extent of bias, harassment and hate crime in their community and the impact of bias and harassment on those targeted, as well as practical skills to help them respond to and prevent hate crime.

The Roundtable also tailors and delivers bespoke for a range of community groups, schools and statutory bodies.
