Anti-racism training in Wales to boost ethnically diverse teachers
More needs to be done to attract an ethnically diverse range of teachers, Wales’ education minister has said.
ทางเข้าpg wallet To say that online slot games are games that get a lot of attention from newcomers who want to invest their luck in gambling is not unusual.
Wales is the first UK nation to make the history of Britain’s colonial past mandatory in school lessons.
Now new anti-racism training for teachers is being rolled out across the country to support this.
The granddaughter of Wales’ first black headteacher said she hopes it will boost the « incredibly low » number of black people entering the profession.
Education Minister, Jeremy Miles said: « I don’t think anybody would believe enough has been done up to this point ».
« I absolutely accept the challenge that there is much more to do, we have a very clear plan for doing that, that is underway, » he said. « Unfortunately it will take some time to do that. »
« I’ve been talking… to some black, Asian and minority ethnic teachers and we’re all agreed that there is much more that we can do, » he added.
Rachel Clarke, a deputy headteacher and granddaughter of Betty Campbell said her grandmother « would think it’s wonderful, and it’s great – but that it should have happened a long time ago ».
« There are only seven black or brown head teachers in Wales today, » Ms Clarke said. « That’s not good enough ».
New resources are now available to teachers in Wales called, ‘diversity and anti-racist professional learning’, created by academic, Chantelle Haughton, who was a pupil of Wales’ first black headteacher, Betty Campbell MBE.
The Cardiff Metropolitan University lecturer described the training as « ground breaking » but said, « it’s really troubling that we’re still having this conversation in 2022 ».
The training was launched at Llanwern High School in Newport, which has its own diversity club and was the first winner of the Betty Campbell MBE award.
