Event Description
Anti-racism and race equality cannot be a side issue in the work of schools. The Black Lives Matter movement raises the same basic issues that were supposed to have been resolved following the tragic death of Stephen Lawrence in 1993. This extended course seeks to bring together and empower schools who want to be known for their genuine commitment to and active delivery of race equality.

This will be in three stages:

  1. an initial full-day masterclass in the summer term will upskill and resource participants so they are ready to lead an initiative in their school and set a challenging agenda to move forward delivery of anti-racism and race equality

  2. each school will receive online consultancy from a wellbeing adviser approximately midway between the first and final sessions to support school progress

  3. a final full-day session in the following spring term will re-gather participants to share in the outcomes of their work, so that all can benefit from the collective approaches and progress

Training objectives

  • to be part of a group of schools committed to developing quality provision of anti-racism and race equality

  • to prepare participants in an initial training day to identify what successful race equality and anti-racism will look like, what aspects of development will benefit their school and prepare participants to lead development back in their school

  • to provide an opportunity for a timely one and a half hour consultancy mid-programme to each participating school to review and support progress

  • to bring participant schools back together to peer review the detail and outcomes of the work

Learning outcomes

  • understanding of BAME experiences of inequality in Britain and key areas for concern and action in schools

  • knowledge of resources to support review and development back in school

  • preparation for change leadership in anti-racism and race equality

  • final involvement in peer review of the outcomes of the programme
