Race Equality and Scottish School Education

CERES, in partnership with the University of Glasgow, the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS), and the University of Edinburgh’s Teacher Education Partnership, has held a series of seminars and a one-hour webinar on “Race Equality and Scottish School Education”. The webinar and associated research briefing can be accessed below.

The webinar includes a presentation from Dr Rowena Arshad, Head of School for Moray House School of Education, University of Edinburgh, and Dr Marta Moskal, School of Education, University of Glasgow, and also presents video clips from academics and practitioners highlighting some of the key themes and examples for practice. 

The webinar and briefing draw on research on black, minority ethnic, migrant and refugee young people from the period 2004-2016 conducted by CERES and their partners, particularly Newcastle University and University of St Andrews, and also from academics associated with Glasgow Refugee Asylum and Migration network (GRAMNet). The research serves to highlight recurring themes which teachers and managers could usefully reflect on as they take forward the indicators in How Good Is Our School 4 and the development of their own professional standards.

Further information about some of this research with BME young people can be accessed on Newcastle University’s website here: https://research.ncl.ac.uk/youngpeople/.

The webinar begins 1 minute in.
