What is Action on Sectarianism?

YouthLink Scotland, the National Agency for Youth Work has set up the first independent public website designed to challenge sectarianism in Scotland, supported by the Scottish Government.

Accessible on computers, tablets and mobile phones, this website will act as a central gateway to information and resources tackle sectarianism in Scotland by providing tailored user access to four distinct target groups:

Children and Young people

Adults: parents, carers, community groups

AoS Network: teachers, youth workers, academics, policy officers, community activists

As part of the ongoing partnership with Glasgow University, Sense over Sectarianism have been delivering a number of sessions to students on a variety of courses.

A total of 7 sessions have been facilitated to PGDE Secondary students, PGDE Primary Students, 3rd Year MEDUC students and CLD Masters students.

The education students have participated on the SOS sessions as part of their “Health and Wellbeing” curriculum and led to lots of vibrant discussion during the sessions and extremely positive feedback from the students.

The CLD masters students had an awareness raising session; before having a session completing some of the various activates delivered to tackle sectarianism in a community setting. The students were then tasked with creating and delivering their own activities to their peers in the final session.

This partnership is part of the initiative to train the facilitators of the future to deliver the range of Tackling Sectarianism resources published on the National Improvement Hub of Education Scotland in early 2017.
