About the event

The BAME in Education Conference will take place on Thursday 13th June 2019 in central London. 

Event background:

According to the Department for Education, BAME individuals are significantly underrepresented across the education sector, from primary and secondary school to colleges and universities. In 2016, only 7% of headteachers in primary schools and 9% in secondary schools were from an Ethnic Minority background. While this has increased by 2% since 2010, more needs to be done to correct this overwhelming imbalance.

The BAME in Education conference seeks to provide current and future leaders with the skills needed to process their careers. This unique conference explores the role of BAME individuals in education and offers practical advice and coaching on how to develop your career and leadership capabilities in times of change. We will discuss together how we can manage the challenges of modern leadership and help ensure we don't lose momentum in recruiting, recognising and rewarding BAME leaders in Education.
