This is a truly unique Continuing Professional Development (CPD) event for primary and secondary school teaching staff, Pastoral Managers and Senior leaders to look at practical strategies for raising the attainment of Black students.  The most unique aspect of this CPD event is that attendees will be able to implement and start measuring the impact of their changes the following day! Attendees will have access to numerous teaching resources, networks, individuals, organisations etc. to implement a richer, more effective curriculum. All attendees will receive a PowerPoint Presentation file that they can present to their teams to summarise the day so that the information is easier to disseminate and share.

What This Conference Will Do:


Provide form tutors, Year Heads and Pastoral Managers with a wealth of resources, individuals and organisations that can support their tutor time

Provide subject teachers of Music, History, English, Science, Drama, Sociology, Mathematics, Art and Religious Education with a wealth of resources that they can use in their classrooms immediately.

Provide SLT with strategies to raise the attainment of African & Caribbean children by engaging the school staff, the parents and the children

Connect every attendee with support networks that can help with a concerted effort to make a positive difference in the short, medium and long-term (join mailing lists).

Supply each attendee with a Powerpoint file to help each person to present a summary of our conclusions to their own senior teams, pastoral teams or faculties.

Give teachers a forum to support each other and be informed of new developments to support their growth, employability and CPD.

(Connect with London Black Teachers) Show attendees the work being done to support the G&T students e.g. the STEM work of Imperial Hub

In Your Last CPD Event On Raising Black Achievement, Did You…

Spend the majority of the time proving that Black students are underachieving? (We will be working on the premise that everyone is already aware of the problem)

Focus on the over-representation of black children being excluded from schools?

Focus on the Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) to prison pipeline?

Bury guests in a mountain of statistics about the plight of African and Caribbean students?

Arrive at the conclusion that the best way to support children of African descent is to raise the quality of everything across the school?  The result of this choice is that the attainment of all students is raised.  Naturally, the biggest improvement will be seen in the lowest achieving groups, but this is not exactly an intervention is it?
