AIEB has developed a resource to support providers of endorsed community work education programmes or those seeking endorsement to embed am anti-racism approach in community work education and training programmes.
This guidance has been developed in consultation with community work educators and community work practitioners working on the issue. This guidance demonstrates AIEB’s ongoing commitment to providing those involved in the education field with advice aimed at enhancing the overall quality of community work education and training.
The purpose of the guidance is to:
• Articulate AIEB’s and endorsed programme providers ongoing commitment to addressing key issues of the day, in this instance racism;
• Support the work of providers of endorsed professional community work education by signposting best practice approaches to ensuring that their programmes can adequately address the complexities of racism in both theory and practice and as it effects groups experiencing racism;
• Enhance current advice and guidance for new programmes seeking endorsement.
