Embedding anti-racism into school culture: a CPD pilot programme for headteachers and senior educators in Liverpool
In an exciting partnership with Liverpool City Council and the national charity EqualiTeach, the Centre for Educational Leadership has led and co-designed a project which seeks to create a community of educational leaders who analyse and enhance practice through: defining a clarity of purpose, focusing on relevant issues, sharing ideas and embedding aspirations.
The pilot programme has been designed for delivery to an initial group of Headteachers and senior leaders in Liverpool. In response to a workforce gap in knowledge and experience around race equality leadership across our region, we are seeking to improve the training of school leaders in anti-racist practices. We have created a positive action project to address race equality issues and challenges in education settings across the Liverpool City Region.
Our evaluation aims to review and understand:
- The impact of the anti-racism training in education
- How the training impacts the leaders’ approach to this issue
- How the leaders have embedded their learning into their practice
- A review of case studies in positive action anti-racism approaches in our schools.
In this session, we will set out the origins of the project, the evolution of a partnership led codesign process, and the outcomes of the design in addressing the identified needs. We will specifically locate the work within the key strategy of people and place, with reference to the impact on the development of leadership skills, enhancement of inclusive culture, and location of under-represented groups in a shared sense of community and opportunity.
