This seminar supports the work of Peter Hick and his team: Promoting cohesion, challenging expectations: educating the teachers of tomorrow for race equality and diversity in 21st century schools.

Peter asks

'We would like to invite you to participate in a working seminar to tease out the key themes of the project and help shape CPD resources, support materials and strategies to take forward ways of dealing with and embedding ‘race’ in/equality matters within initial teacher education programmes.

As a colleague with an interest in ‘race’ in/equality in teacher education, your input to the seminar would be very much appreciated. Lunch will be provided at 1.00 p.m. after which we will be briefly outlining the key findings from the research, before breaking into smaller groups to discuss the findings and your suggestions and ideas for a website to support further work in the area of ‘race’ in/equality for all initial teacher education staff. Our aim is to produce a website which will be useful and the input of staff is therefore extremely important at this stage to advise us on the content and format of the resource.'

The seminar runs from 1-3.30pm on June 15th. Please contact B.Ashcroft@mmu.ac.uk or Tel: 0161 247 232 directly to book your place.
