Our work in education covers a number of broad areas:

  • Conducting research on race equality in education
  • Responding to proposed education policy developments
  • Support for schools to include ethnic diversity in the curriculum.

In 2015 we also produced a major report on higher education and race, Aiming Higher, outlining the continued inequalities for Black and minority ethnic people in terms of admissions, degree attainment, curriculum content, and staffing in universities.

Our work on assisting schools with creating more inclusive classrooms centres around the development of a broad range of teaching resources, all of which are curriculum based.

Resources have been developed to support completed projects including those created for Bangla Stories, Belonging and Young, Muslim and Citizen projects.  Our learning resources can also be used by youth workers and other individuals supporting young people. The learning guides developed out of the Generation 3.0 project are a good example. New resources are currently being developed to support a project exploring the diversity of those who lived in Roman Britain.

Past reports have explored race equality within higher education (December 2010) and have revisited debates surrounding the disproportionate exclusions of Black pupils (July 2010) from schools in England.

We can also provide access to information about educational resources available in your local area through our Real Histories Directory. Opportunities for professional development may be introduced in future.
