Coventry Peace Award News #2

Several teachers have written asking how to register for the Coventry Peace Award.

The registration form is here. We recommend that you register as soon as possible so you can benefit from our support as you work towards accreditation.

Please feel free to contact us via info@coventrypeaceaward.uk if need any help, support or suggestions of what you can do to achieve accreditation.

This edition of the newsletter contains a list of forthcoming peace-related CPD opportunities and activities you might not have thought about. 

Please let us know of the activities in your school so we can share them with other schools.

Indeed, schools might want to work together on some projects and this is a good way of identifying possible partnerships.

Finally please feel free to pass this newsletter on to other teachers in your school and also those in other schools who might be interested in joining the scheme.

Best wishes and thanks for your interest in the Coventry Peace Award.
