Our ‘Decolonising and diversifying the curriculum’ course brings together a wealth of case studies, resources and supporting material developed by, and with feedback from, a range of expert teachers, leaders and researchers. This course will support you to increase your knowledge of the multiplicity of British histories and identities, select literature and resources that foster belonging, address the perspectives represented in the curriculum, consider how lenses that decolonise and diversify can be applied to the curriculum, and have confident conversations with pupils about race. The online series is available free to members and includes six key modules where you will learn more about:
• The challenges of defining what it means to decolonise and diversify the curriculum
• The multiplicity of British histories and their influence on the curriculum
• Why schools do and might choose to undertake this work
• What decolonising and diversifying the curriculum might look like in practice
• How to make literature and resource choices that foster belonging for all pupils
• How to become more confident and effective in conversations about race.
The six short online modules take around 2 hours each and are available free to members of the Chartered College of Teaching via MyCollege. Members can work through it flexibly in their own time and pace. If you are not currently a member, you can find out further information on membership and how to join here.
The online learning content for this series was developed with funding from Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
