EDI Middle Leaders Conference Summer 24

Raising consciousness, developing confidence and building competence in EDI is everyone’s responsibility, no matter what the role and remit we hold. A  Diverse Curriculum allows young people to see and be seen in the curriculum.

Join Bennie Kara and Hannah Wilson, Co-Founders of Diverse Educators and Co-Editors of Diverse Educators: A Manifesto for an in person day of training to inspire and empower curriculum leaders across all phases.

What does it mean to ‘diversify’ the curriculum?

The phrase ‘diversity in the curriculum’ usually applies to the concept of a curriculum that is inclusive of the experiences and histories of those with protected characteristics, and often seeks to erase systemic barriers in our society through fairer and more equitable distribution of curriculum content. It serves to allow young people to think more critically about how knowledge is formed and how it comes to be valued. Diversity in the curriculum does not replace or exclude anti-racist curriculum analysis and action

Diverse Educators are committed to moving the agenda forwards regarding Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in our school system. They work with schools, to support them with their EDI strategy and their EDI training needs.

The beliefs, knowledge, understanding and/or teaching practices this programme aims to address:

The day will consist of four sessions:

  • Session 1 – An Introduction to EDI (the Equality Act and Protected Characteristics)
  • Session 2 – Approaches to Embedding Diversity in the Curriculum
  • Session 3 – Signposting to Resources and Best Practice
  • Session 4 – Action Planning (Leading Change and Evaluating Impact)

Intended Impact on practice:

This one day conference will support middle leaders to:

  • Grow consciousness, build confidence and develop competence
  • Clarify why we need to diversify the curriculum
  • Understanding how to approach and embed diversity in the curriculum
  • Commit to creating impact and legacy by being proactive

Intended improvement and/or evaluation of impact for pupils, including those with SEND and/or disadvantaged backgrounds:

A Diverse Curriculum allows young people:

  • To see and be seen in the curriculum
  • To interrogate how knowledge in the curriculum has come to be valued
  • To hear ‘multiple co-existing narratives’ in all subjects to understand how systemic barriers manifest for those with protected characteristics and intersectional identities
