The Community Development and Youth Work (CDYW) programme team received funding from the IMPACT project as part of the Le Chéile award application during the academic year 2020/2021. The overall aim of the CDYW Le Chéile journey was to embed anti-racism in the teaching, learning and assessment of the programme. Changes were introduced to modules in terms of new content, students were exposed to different perspectives and voices, and new workshops were designed for placement preparation around identifying and responding to racism. With regard to assessment, case studies were used to develop responses to the lived experiences of racism in community development, youth work and higher education settings. Lecturing staff increased their racial literacy through participation in anti-racism training and attending webinars. They developed their reflective practice with regard to anti-racism during a staff workshop and through the changes subsequently introduced in various modules. Students were supported to identify and respond to racism through the space created for discussion around race, racism, racial inequalities and responses with lectures in their modules, through engaging in anti-racism training and attending and participating in events such as the Le Chéile project anti-racism seminar. Lecturers and students co-created the knowledge and outputs - workshops, events, government submissions, and an anti-racism charter are some of the numerous examples of proactive anti-racism emanating from this project. The team partnered with the EDI Directorate on the project to inform TU Dublin strategy on race equity. A summary can be viewed at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbVdEMNjGnU
