Learning About Inter Faith is a resource designed to help Key Stage 3 pupils learn about the variety of inter faith activity across the UK, using examples from across different communities. The resource can also help pupils to think about British values and values shared by different religions. 

The resource consists of a teachers’ introduction and four units. Teachers can choose individual units to suit pupils’ needs and interests. Learning about Inter Faith is created by The Inter Faith Network which aims to make better known and understood the teachings, traditions and practices of the different faith communities in the UK. Teachers may want to use this resource during Inter Faith Week.
