Our academic and professional research enables us to understand the experiences of people of colour, including children, young people, teachers, education leaders and community groups.
Through our research we seek to inform education policy change, to decolonise and transform curricula to reflect the contributions and experiences of people of colour, nationally and internationally – in order to prepare all to live, learn and work in a racially and ethnically diverse world.
The centre seeks to work in partnership with education professionals in all sectors from early years through to further education. To develop teachers and practitioners to become race equality education activists/advocates – challenging racism in all its forms and developing anti-racist practices. To decolonise the curriculum and develop colleagues’ knowledge and understanding of race and racism in education. We also work with teachers, children and young people to develop teaching resources to tackle racism in schools and society.
