Our Work

DECSY runs training sessions and workshops for teachers and other educators using a range of approaches. In 2017 we ran nearly 100 training sessions reaching over 1800 teachers, Early Years practitioners and ITE Students.

Our staff are also involved with Global Learning projects including creating a Gender Equality Charter Mark for secondary schools (funded by the EU), The Schools Linking Project, an EU funded project to incorporate maths into citizenship lessons (PiCaM), and an Outdoor Learning and Schools Gardens project with primary school pupils in Sheffield. See our Project pages for more information on all the projects we are involved with.

We are currently receiving funding for our project work from: the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme, DFID, Ernest Cook Trust, The Nineveh Charitable Trust, Open Gate Trust, Sheffield City Council, The Linking Network.
