Donegal Intercultural Training Team (DITT)

The Donegal Intercultural Training Team (DITT) was established by Donegal Travellers Project  (DTP) and is coordinated by Kate Hagan. The Team offers a panel of skilled trainers drawn from the Travellers Project and the  Intercultural Platform experienced staff and members. Building on nearly 30 years of the Human Rights campaigning experience in the DTP’s struggle to achieve recognition, rights and representation for the Traveller community in the county, this training service offers bespoke training in Intercultural Awareness, Intercultural Competence and Diversity Awareness and can support the development of anti-racism and diversity policies for organisations and agencies.

Members of the Donegal Intercultural Platform are part of the training team. Many of our members took part in the Intercultural Studies at QQI level 5 in 2017 and in the Level 7 Certificate ‘Community Work in a Changing Ireland’ with Maynooth University (2020/21). The team have been busy delivering a range of training to businesses, schools, TUSLA and HSE staff, to foster parents, Health and Education staff in Northern Ireland, community workers and many others. We can offer a range of intercultural awareness, diversity awareness and related courses, many designed to fit the needs of particular audiences and organisations. More recently these courses have moved online due to Covid 19 public health restrictions. But the team are now able to offer a blended range of customised programmes to suit the needs of organisations and agencies.

As part of the Building Intercultural Communities Project (BIC – 2018 – 2020 funded under the PEACE IV programme) the DITT developed a new and unique online training tool call #DiversityAware. The course is free and available online here…
