An E-Team is a group of young people supported by adults that works to promote equality within their setting.
In a primary school this may be finding ways to promote friendships and celebrate difference. In secondary schools or youth settings the teams can work towards addressing equalities issues, such as racism, sexism, HBT (Homophobic, Biphobic and Transphobic) language and behaviour. The teams can work towards issues within their local area, schools or wherever the E-Team is based.
This guide has been produced by young people and is intended to help you to set up an E-team and create a group to take action within your school, club or other environment. We have provided some suggestions based on our experiences but each E-Team should choose how their team is run.
Although the guide has been produced by Bath and North East Somerset Council, there is no reason why Wiltshire schools can't follow these examples of good practice.
If Wiltshire schools have developed and are using E-teams we would be interested to hear about them
