The Scottish Association of Minority Ethnic Educators (SAMEE) is a nation-wide organisation led by Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) education professionals. We have a presence across West, East and Central Scotland, with heightened visibility in areas with the highest concentration of Scotland’s BME educators and learners in nursery, primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities.
The skillset and knowledge of our members through their research in education; race equality; youth policy and lived experiences, encourages a stronger sense of identity and belonging among BME education professionals and creates a stronger cohesion between BME pupils, parents, carers, educators, school executives and national educational organisations. SAMEE is supported by Scottish Government, Education Scotland, the General Teaching Council for Scotland, trade unions and other public bodies.
We provide a strong voice to social, educational and professional communities, empowering BME parents to support young people; learners to progress in their education; and educators to advance in their careers. Our community of education professionals provide support to educators and learners through workshops, seminars, conferences, one-to-one consultations, continued professional learning and bespoke coaching and mentoring activities.
We look forward to welcoming you to our events and activities.
