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