Between November 2015 and March 2016, CEJI has given more than 20 training courses on various topics such as 'Understanding and managing cultural diversity in my class and my professional practice', 'Better understanding Judaism and contemporary manifestations of anti-Semitism' and 'Understanding Islam and contemporary manifestations of Islamophobia'. These training courses have so far taken place in Hainault, Namur, Liege, Luxembourg province and Brussels. The final training course of our six month journey across Belgium took place towards the end of March at the Athénée Royal d'Ixelles, closing a cycle that brought together more than 300 secondary school teachers since we began back in November 2015.
