Getting it right for every child: is our education provision racially literate? CERES Conversation 2019 @ Moray House School of Education, Holyrood Campus, Edinburgh
Jun 20 – Jun 21 all-day

Centre for Education for Racial Equality in Scotland (CERES)

This two-day event provides education practitioners (early years, schools, colleges, universities, adult education) with spaces to consider how literate you and your establishment are on matters of racial, cultural, religious and linguistic diversity.

The event will provide a challenging but safe space for us to dismantle what are often seen as complex, sensitive and controversial issues. We will be discussing a range of issues, from talking about racism with pupils of different ages, Whiteness, Islamophobia, culturally relevant pedagogy, to learning what recent research tells us about how to support pupils for whom English is an Additional Language.
