BAME in Education

BAME in Education | Thursday 13th June 2019

According to the Department for Education, BAME individuals are significantly underrepresented across the education sector, from primary and secondary school to colleagues and universities. In 2016, only 7% of headteachers in primary schools and 9% in secondary schools were from an Ethnic Minority background. While this has increased by 2% since 2010, more needs to be done to correct this overwhelming imbalance.

The unique BAME in Education conference explores the role of BAME individuals in education leadership and offers practical advice and coaching on how to further develop your career in times of change. We will discuss together how we can manage the challenges of modern leadership and help ensure we don't lose momentum in recognising and rewarding BAME leaders across the education sector.
