From 6-7 December the final opportunity will happen this year to attend a course for educators and other educational staff members who want to better understand Romani children. The accredited course, offered by the R-Mosty NGO, is free of charge thanks to support from the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport.

The course is appropriate for anybody working in education, as well as for contact workers in social services, staffers of educational-psychological counseling centers, and members of other professions who come into contact with Romani people and especially Romani pupils. The course provides comprehensive information about Romani cultural specificity, Romani history and the Romanes language, as well as the current socioeconomic situation of Romani people, and with the aid of interactive discussions will shed light on some of the misunderstandings experienced during contact between majority-society members and Romani people, as well as the stereotypes behind those misunderstandings.

Graduates of the course, which is in its seventh year of successful implementation, appreciate that it increases their awareness about the Romani community, which facilitates more effective collaboration and communication with their Romani clients and pupils. The lecturers in the seminar are Mgr. Vlasta Geryková, an expert on inclusive education who is the principal of the Primary School Floriána Bayera in Kopřivnice, and the Romani Studies scholars Mgr. Barbora Šebová and Bc. David Tišer, who is a member of the Romani community.

The course involves 16 hours of instruction. Those attending from outside Prague will have the costs of their accommodation and transportation covered.

Those interested in attending can apply by writing to or calling 725 345 594. The maximum capacity is 15 persons.

The course is accredited through the Czech ministry's DVPP system (Continuing Education for Educational Staffers). For more information, please visit
