Tolerance of Different Faiths and Beliefs
At DESC we are a culturally rich and diverse centre where young people and staff have unique opportunities to learn from each other, by sharing and celebrating their different faiths and cultures. Members of different faiths or religions are encouraged to share their knowledge, to enhance learning within sessions and the centre. Specific Equality and Diversity units of work enable us to embed our ethos of tolerance and understanding and break down potential misconceptions and challenge any stereotypes or prejudices. We carefully select media materials within the centre, including a range of newspapers and magazines such as i Newspaper, The Week, The Big Issue and First News which are readily available with our café area as well as TV coverage, This gives young people access to a more holistic view of the world and all students are encouraged to be critical thinkers, by reading a wider variety of news and understand the importance of interpreting information correctly.
