Cooperative learning - because we is more than me
“…this was fantastic, eye-opening and very visceral.”
- Matt Vince, PGCE student at Exeter University, 2014.
Clients. Partners. Delegates.
Prevent or promote? Values, identity, safeguarding...
AKSAA are market leaders in Islamic Awareness and Cultural Competency Training. Since 2004 more than 17,500 delegates have undergone unique and insightful courses delivered in over 80 different Local Authority locations across the UK.
Werdelin Education has developed an entirely new type of courses for AKSAA, to meet statutory requirements related to community cohesion, fundamental British values and Citizenship in secondary state schools with a large proportion of Muslim students.
As part of the Government’s Prevent Strategy, and for the schools to fulfil their Prevent duty, Aksaa has been delivering specialist training for pupils and teachers to help build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British values and enabling them to challenge extremist views.
By using Cooperative Learning to engage all students in authentic debates about values and choice, this unique course facilitates democratic negotiation of controversial issues in a safe, social environment.
Debates are based on relevant subject knowledge and students get the opportunity to ask frank, questions directly to adult Muslim consultants.
“Cooperative Learning helps you think on your feet and be
more focused... It helps with promoting your opinions
more effectively with deeper thinking.”
- Mr K. Tai, Director of AKSAA, 2015.
