"The means is dialogue, the end is learning, the purpose is peace." ~ Founder Dr. Jane Vella
Peter Tate works at the Kings Centre in Southall London, designing and delivering both face-to-face and digital training for those who are preparing for or are situated in interfaith contexts. The training develops understanding on how to build relationships and to work with different faith communities that have significant presence or are in the majority. Alongside this he is also completing a Masters degree in Digital Education with Edinburgh University, researching on how to build safe spaces within online training on contentious issues. Previously Peter worked as UK co-ordinator of Learning that LASTS, a training-the-trainers workshop developed by Wycliffe Bible Translators and endorsed by Jane Vella. He went on to implement Planning that LASTS to help participants to convert their existing teaching content into DE format. He led this programme in the UK for 9 years, and also taught these courses in the US and Africa in that time. Peter loves training, either designing it or helping others learn to do so or simply training them to teach more effectively. He has extensive experience in charity and faith based sectors both in the UK and internationally. His recent studies and his current role have helped him build skills to also put training into digital formats. Before that Peter worked in Ghana with Wycliffe, helping to develop alphabets for unwritten languages and prior to that, worked in the software industry in Northern Ireland, where he is originally from.
