41 teachers from 21 pilot schools in Albania, acting as leaders of anti-bullying school teams will enhance their knowledge and skills for developing anti-bullying school policies which will be further disseminated to their peers through training of trainers sessions. As a result of this training, teachers and school administration staff from the 21 pilot schools will be able to formulate anti-bullying school policies and action plans that will tackle controversial issues such as bullying and extremism in schools.
As confirmed by the Council of Europe National Survey on Bullying and Extremism in the Education System in Albania (2017), teachers claimed that there are no specific anti-bullying school policies in place in schools and as such bullying is not addressed properly by the teachers and school staff.
This training session has thus been designed to address this gap and assist teachers in developing these policies. Anti-bullying school policies and Action Plans will be finalised by 21 pilot schools by the end of June 2018.
This event is being organised in the framework of the joint EU/CoE Horizontal Facility Action “Fighting bullying and extremism in the education system in Albania”.
