Challenging extremism - Train the trainer workshop

The GOT (Getting on Together) project came into being as a result of social tensions in the wake of the atrocity in New York on 11 September 2001 (9/11). The project was given a further priority following the bombings in the London Underground and the double-decker bus at Tavistock Square in 2005.

The general objectives of the GOT project are:

  • To counter intolerance and extremism through independent and critical thinking
  • To facilitate knowledge and understanding of the non-violent message of the Islamic faith
  • To reduce prejudice and discrimination between all cultures, faiths and creeds
  • To promote integrated and cohesive communities.

GOT Workshop objectives

  • To promote the knowledge, understanding and confidence to introduce the Challenging Extremism programme through independent and critical thinking.

  • To provide a working knowledge of safeguarding procedures currently in place to support vulnerable individuals.
