Courageous Advocacy

Date: 27th January 2022

Time: 10:00 - 12:30


Helping children to become courageous advocates is an important aspect of enabling children to    flourish in school. SIAMS ask us how well the school’s Christian vision inspires the whole school    community to engage in social action and to be courageous advocates for change in their local, national and global communities. But what exactly is courageous advocacy and how can we promote it in our schools.

This course will look at what courageous advocacy is and is not, as well as how we can go ‘beyond the cake sale’ in our schools. We will also explore how SIAMS will inspect for courageous advocacy and look at some supporting resources. This session aims to:

  • · develop an understanding of courageous advocacy in school
  • · understand how children can become courageous advocates
  • · look at some key resources for courageous advocacy including Christian Aid’s Global Neighbours scheme and the Archbishop of York’s Youth Trust’s (ABYYT) Youth Leadership scheme.
