Course Description
This three-part course is ideal for anyone working or leading in an educational setting. The course is insightful, explores perspectives rarely seen, and focuses on the following topics:

Session 1: Black people in World History and British History
This session guides delegates through the story of Black people in World History and British History, sharing documented intellectual developments, practices and contributions to civilisation, challenging the popularised narratives which have fed into unconscious bias and practices in education, and society at large.

Session 2: Representation of Black History: developing a progressive approach
Through evaluation of case studies, delegates will develop the critical thinking required to examine various approaches to Black history, decolonising the curriculum and Black History Month. A progressive framework is proposed as a practical tool, which can be used to evaluate the implementation of Black History to allow a tangible ‘next steps’ approach within departments or across the school or setting. This framework will provide a standardised approach to the intent and impact of the ‘quality of education’; Elevating the wellbeing, engagement and representation of Black learners in the classroom.

Session 3: Decolonising Practice and Curriculum: From Theory to Practice
This session will demonstrate how the framework can be used for maximum impact in practice, building on the skills and awareness developed in the previous sessions. Staff will work in small groups to make suggestions and contribute ideas in this interactive session. Further suggestions for bias safeguards are also introduced related to sanctions, incident reporting, teacher assessment and expectations, which may be useful at the individual, department or whole school level. This session will guide your staff to become more culturally competent and racially literate and better able to support all children / young people to thrive.
