Training Day Registration Junior School 1 2022

2022 Training Clinic


(8-13 years old students)

Eth-letes and coaches

29th or 31st March 2022
2nd or 5th August 2022

We ran training clinics last year for students preparing for Ethics Olympiads and the feedback from participating coaches and students was very positive. More importantly, the extra skills and confidence demonstrated by eth-letes at the Olympiads were obvious, to participating teachers and the judging panel.

Please note these training days are not compulsory but the training clinics are tailored to meet the needs of eth-letes (students), and coaches (teachers) as they prepare for the Junior School Ethics Olympiad. Participants will explore the same ethical cases as will be used in the Olympiads with specialists in Philosophy and Ethics. The day will involve an intensive in-service via Zoom in Ethics as well as many useful tips for students and coaches. Participants will not only hear from an international panel of experts during the day but also have the opportunity to engage with the judges. Please note that these training clinics are immune to Covid lockdowns as trainees and trainers can if necessary participate from home.

Schools are invited to register students to participate in a training clinic. During the day coaches and eth-letes will observe others preparing for an Ethics Olympiad heat and be involved in practical activities designed to improve skills. We will explore ways to deal with the current case set.
