Racial equity: Racial Literacy for school staff

15/11/2023 09:30 - 12:00
This introductory two and half hour session equips participants with the foundational knowledge required to engage in the sensitive and complex issues of ‘race’ and racism by: 

• exploring ‘race’ and racism in the historical and contemporary context including an outline of structural/institutional racism, bias and white privilege 

• giving an understanding of the experiences of children and young people, both in terms of how they learn 'race' and their racialised experiences 

• outlining the key areas that schools and education settings can examine to advance their anti-racist practice 

Led by Abha Aggarwal of Race Matters

Initially, we suggest prioritising a senior leader and people of colour members of staff to attend the course. 

Places can be booked for up to 4 members of staff from one school for each course.

A foundation of knowledge and understanding in order to begin conversations about ‘race’ and racism within the school context.
