Event description This course is free to schools that buy back into the CPD SLA and all childminders.

This four-session training course has been commissioned to support school, early years and local authority leaders to respond to the issues pertaining to race equity – including those highlighted by the death of George Floyd and the subsequent Black Lives Matters protests. It aims to ensure that leaders are informed about research and current practice in the area of cultural competence and will specifically look at:

·         Key factors in the persistent underachievement of Black Caribbean pupils
·         Leadership on equality issues.
·         Unconscious bias and micro-aggressions: How background, personal experiences, stereotypes and cultural context impact on decisions and actions without you realising.
·         Introduction to Racial Identity Theory and Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome
·         Strategies for developing cultural competence within organisations

Session 1: Unconscious Bias (delivered 28th January 2021)
Session 2: Racial Identity Theory - 21st April 2021
Session 3: Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome - 5th May 2021
Session 4: Cultural Competence - 7th May 2021

This course is a follow-up to training provided as part of the Ealing No Learner Left Behind (Black Caribbean Achievement*) Project, and therefore much of the information and examples provided will be centred upon Black Caribbean learners.  However, the learning gained can be applied to the considerations for learners of other ethnicities too.

* The term ‘Black Caribbean’, aligns with School Census ethnicity terminology. We acknowledge that many Black people of Caribbean heritage may identify themselves as African / African-Caribbean / Black / Black British, as opposed to the term ‘Black Caribbean’.

For those colleagues wishing to attend sessions 2, 3 and 4 without having attended session 1, in principle, it is possible to book onto the remaining three sessions.   However, you would be required to review all the course materials for session 1 (the powerpoint slides, handouts, videos, completion of the exercises, etc.) before attending session 2.  The training materials for session 1 will be sent to you with your confirmation email when booking onto sessions 2, 3 and 4.
