SCOTTISH BME MENTORING NETWORK
LAUNCHING ON FRIDAY 29th NOVEMBER 2019
Led by SAMEE and in partnership with the GTCS, the Scottish Black and Minority Ethnic Mentoring Network follows the recommendations of the national report on 'Teaching in a Diverse Scotland: Increasing and Retaining Minority Ethnic Teachers.' In an effort to address the lack of ethnic diversity in the teaching profession, this programme is essential for sustained and meaningful progress in race equality in Scottish education.
Launching on Friday 29th November 2019 at the Glasgow City Chambers, this network recognises and supports aspiring minority ethnic teachers and encourages them to apply for promotion both within schools and across the wider education service. Let by BME educators, the mentoring network will encourage participants to recognise and develop their skills and it will include the ability to spend time in another school or local authority to shadow a promoted member of staff. As part of this, the network will examine how racism, institutional racism, bias (conscious or unconscious), and lack of awareness act as blocks to the promotion of BME teachers.
