Piloting the Yellow Flag in Froebel College


The Irish Traveller Movement piloted the Yellow Flag for the first time in a Higher Education Institute, Froebel College of Education in Blackrock D4. Froebel College is one of five colleges in the Republic recognised by the DES  for the training and education of Primary School Teachers. Froebel College participated on the programme in 2010/11. The pilot took the form of Action Research to see if the YFP could be transferred from schools to a Higher Education Institution and this is the Report detailing the process and its finding's.



ITM Froebel Report

The Yellow Flag initiative is a wonderful programme. We live in a country rich in diversity, and so it’s really important to appreciate and celebrate different cultures. It’s important to encourage our younger generation to immerse themselves into other cultures and embrace diversity, as they are our future and it will be them who determine the attitudes and actions of future generations.
