Race Equality Consultancy, Facilitation and Training

The work BTEG has done recently with many organisations has highlighted a number of important issues and gaps that some of them have in working with BAMER communities.

BTEG can offer expert support in addressing these issues and gaps by enabling organisations to commission bespoke interventions that suit their needs and locality, through training, facilitation and consultancy.

Training:

The training subjects below are suggested through BTEG’s previous work:

  • Culture, faith and diversity training/workshops. Full day sessions or half-day workshops concentrating on local demographic and social issues.
  • Myths and misconceptions of Islam and the young person’s perspective.   Full day training or half-day overview workshop.
  • Working with Muslim offenders.
  • How to work with refugee and migrant communities. 
  • How to build relationships with BAME/faith bodies/community groups.  Half-day workshop
  • Building representative staff and volunteer teams. Half-day workshops
  • Culture, faith and diversity training/workshops. Full day sessions or half-day workshops concentrating on local demographic and social issues.
  • Myths and misconceptions of Islam and the young person’s perspective.   Full day training or half-day overview workshop.
  • How to build relationships with BAME/faith bodies/community groups.  Half-day workshop

This is not an exhaustive list and BTEG is able to respond to the particular needs of organisations that may want specific training and have particular development needs around race, ethnicity and faith

With over 20 years training and facilitation experience we accommodate varying learning styles and BTEG trainers ensure that the delivery has a good balance of trainer input and attendee participation. We provide quality supporting materials which would be developed according to the needs of the commissioning organisation.

Facilitation:       

BTEG has expertise in facilitating discussions, dialogue and debate with a range of audiences. Through our work we have found there is often a lack of expertise within organisations to facilitate some of the core conversations that need to be had with BAME communities and young people. Also, for some people the topics are uncomfortable and therefore difficult to discuss without the impartial and objective input of an outside facilitator.

For some organisations there is a capacity issue and managing such discussions, although crucial to the bigger picture, is outside their remit of delivery.

Two key areas that could add value to the existing work are:

  1. The facilitation of dialogue between stakeholders, for example, between delivery organisation and families/community or between public bodies and communities.
  2. The facilitation of focus/review groups of young people using existing services

Consultancy:    

Where there are gaps in information, data and good practice within organisations, short pieces of consultancy can add value and support to existing work, for example:

  1. Mapping local need in relation to race, ethnicity and faith (e.g. does your user base reflect the local community)
  2. Independent project/service evaluation
  3. Short audit/review and recommendations of existing practices in relation to BAME engagement and BAME needs.

Organisations will be able to select one, or a combination, of the above. For example, an organisation may need to review their existing work with young BAME offenders and produce an action plan for improvements. This could be followed up with some bespoke training identified during the review such as engaging with Muslim offenders). See below for further suggestions.

The cost of individual interventions is negotiable, dependent on the needs of each organisation.
