The Centre for Human Rights and Citizenship Education  has been awarded funding by the the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth to incorporate authentic minority ethnic young people’s voices within teacher education programmes at both pre-service and in-service levels.

The specific objective of this project is to give voice to the young people and their stories with a view to increasing understanding of their experiences in teacher education programmes. 

This project will contribute to the authentic representation of young people with ethnic minority backgrounds within the education sector and an authentic and respectful public portrayal of individuals’ personal stories.

The project is unique in that it not only does it facilitate expression of young people's voices but also facilitates incorporating their authentic lived experiences in the educational research.
