FOR MIDDLE AND JUNIOR & SCHOOL STUDENTS YEARS
Over the years we have had many requests from participating schools to offer training for teams and coaches. This day-long training session will be tailored to meet the needs of eth-letes (students), and coaches (teachers) preparing for the Middle and Junior School Ethics Olympiads. Participants will explore cases with specialists in Philosophy and Ethics. The day will involve an intensive in-service in ethics as well as a great deal of practical and useful ideas students to be confident in the Ethics Olympiad. Participants will also hear from people around the world.
“Great day and invaluable experience for our students. Thank you so very much!” – Victorian Teacher
Schools are invited to register students to participate in the Ethics Olympiad training clinic. During the day coaches and eth-letes will hear from experts in the field including many of the judges.
