INTRODUCTION

This tender is for the production of ‘Change Ambassador’ toolkit
for minoritised post-primary students.

The Yellow Flag Programme are seeking tenders from suitably qualified
individuals or organisations to develop this toolkit in partnership
with ITM and stakeholders from national youth organisations.

The Yellow Flag Programme works with teachers and staff to embed
anti-racism within a school institution. Through the Diversity
Committee mechanism (Step 2), which brings together a range of
students with teachers and community representatives, the programme
has had great success in engaging young people from ethnic minority
backgrounds. This forum serves as a space for young people to express
their views, and influence school life.

The successful candidate will be tasked with the development,
production and delivery of a ‘capacity building toolkit for ethnic
minority students in post primary school. The toolkit will support
Diversity Committee students in becoming GCE (global citizenship
education) ‘change ambassadors’. The tailored toolkit will cover
areas such as critical perspectives, managing challenging
conversations, how to raise awareness and take action in the face of
social injustice at a local, national, and global level. This includes
personal actions one can take, as well as tips on how to leverage
national and international reporting and human rights mechanisms to
advance equality and justice.

BACKGROUND

The Yellow Flag Programme was founded by the Irish Traveller Movement
as an innovative, intercultural solution to tackle racism at a social
and institutional level, and equip schools with the tools to cultivate
an inclusive learning environment, where diversity of ethnicities,
cultures and religions is valued and celebrated.

It is the only practical 8-step framework of its kind in Ireland that
takes a whole-school approach to inclusion, and it was developed in
**Apply on the website** in response to Ireland’s increasing
cultural diversity, with people from over **Apply on the website**
countries comprising our ethnic population, and considering the
approximately **Apply on the website**,**Apply on the website** to
**Apply on the website**,**Apply on the website**(1) Travellers in
Ireland.

Despite Government efforts to promote migrant integration, and policy
intended to ensure Traveller inclusion, those groups, who constitute
citizens, residents, migrant workers, refugees and asylum seekers,
experience discrimination and exclusion.

The role of schools as learning environments in which to defeat racism
and promote inclusion at a critical early life stage, gives the Yellow
Flag Programme a core operating framework, and importantly, equips
children at those schools with the tools to take that learning into
their home and community settings. It also recognises that an insecure
connection within the school environment, and associated negative
identity-based experiences, render Black Minority and Ethnic (BME)
students, including Travellers and Roma, vulnerable to adverse
psychosocial impacts, early school leaving, and reduced education and
employment outcomes.

TENDER OUTLINE
