Young Palestinians in Nottm Tues 25 Sept: come & hear their story
We are really pleased to announce that a group of students from the EU-funded project Ma’an - Together will be visiting Nottingham on Tuesday 25th September. The project brings together young people from France, Palestine and the UK. Many of the young people in the group were part of youth exchanges together in France in October 2017 and Palestine in April 2018.
The themes of the project are anti-discrimination, human rights and media/ speaking out. In Europe, they have discussed discrimination and in Palestine they were seeing the real lack of human rights that the Palestinians in the group were suffering. During the UK part of the project they will explore ways that young people can take their voice outwards and campaign for human rights and against discrimination.
It will be really interesting to meet the young people and hear about their lives in France and in Palestine
Tues 25th 7pm - Visit by Ma'an project by Palestinian, French & British young people Venue: at the International Community Centre, 61b Mansfield Rd NG1 3FN

What is happening with teachers pay?
Teachers need a pay rise across the board.
The Government needs to fully fund the pay rise.
We need to talk about how we campaign to increase pay.
As a result of national pressure from the National Education Union and other unions, the DfE has launched a workload toolkit encouraging school leaders to work with staff to eliminate unnecessary activities.
Together with the NEU, it has also produced a video focussing on reducing the burden of planning.
