Job Description

Do you want to empower young people to challenge discrimination? Are you passionate about tackling anti-Muslim and antisemitic rhetoric?

Stand Up! Education Against Discrimination works with young people in mainstream schools to learn about and act against discrimination, racism, antisemitism and anti-Muslim hatred, whilst encouraging students to develop their social responsibility. Stand Up! is a Government funded interfaith programme, led by Streetwise and supported by Tell MAMA

We are looking to recruit an experienced educator to deliver and administer informal educational sessions in secondary schools across England. The candidate will have specific understanding of anti-Muslim hatred, discrimination and hate crime and how this affects young people today. You must be motivated and driven to create social change in society. This growing project has already reached over 17,000 students in 50 schools since January 2017 with overwhelmingly positive feedback from teachers and students.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Delivering informal educational sessions in secondary schools
  • Developing a range of dynamic and interactive educational resources
  • Coordinating, administering and managing a busy calendar of activities
  • Extensive training on the topic of discrimination, anti-Muslim hatred and antisemitism
  • Proactively establishing and developing relationships with a range of stakeholders
  • Ongoing development and growth of the Stand Up! programme
  • Travelling to facilitate sessions (across London and occasionally outside of London)

The ideal candidate should have:

  • Educational qualifications or extensive experience in informal education
  • Detailed knowledge and understanding of Islam, anti-Muslim hate and discrimination
  • Excellent interpersonal and communications skills, with a real passion for working with young people
  • Eagerness to work in an interfaith Muslim and Jewish partnership project, formally employed by Maccabi GB
