Registration is now open for the upcoming CERES Conversation 2019, “Getting it right for every child: Is our education provision racially literate?”

Thursday 20th June to Friday 21st June
Moray House School of Education, University of Edinburgh

You can register for the Conversation on Eventbrite HERE.

This two day event, taking place from Thursday 20th June to Friday 21st June at Moray House School of Education in Edinburgh,  provides education practitioners with a space to consider how literate you and your establishment are on matters of racial, cultural, religious and linguistic diversity. There will be opportunities to engage with what research tells us and to hear from practitioners who are trying to make their education provision more responsive.

We welcome all education practitioners and researchers. Come and be part of the conversation if you are a researcher interested in race equality and education, a classroom teacher, school leader, early years practitioner or manager, local authority education officer, student teacher, secondary school pupil (especially 5th and 6th years), parent, community member with an interest in education, or anyone with an interest in race equality in education.
