Cultural Competence

Tackling the disproportionality in attainment and exclusions of Black Caribbean heritage pupils, particularly boys.  This session will support Hackney’s Young Black Men initiative. The aim is to ensure leaders are informed from research findings and current practice, particularly in the area of cultural competence. 

Who should attend? 

Leaders and influencers.

Course objectives:

Probing questions will include: How are leaders developing better ways to improve outcomes and life experiences of black young men and women? How can we use the racial identity models to address unconscious bias, and ensure that staff are well-equipped to include all? How can the curriculum be developed to promote a strong sense of belonging and inclusivity? What are the tools and key questions we could use to assess how well your school is addressing racial identity and promoting better outcomes for Black Caribbean heritage pupils?

 It will look at the following: 

  • The key factors in persistent underachievement
  • Leadership on equality issues
  • House of Commons Education Committee: ‘Forgotten Children’
  • Unconscious bias and cultural bias
  • The impact of background, personal experiences, societal stereotypes, and cultural context on your decisions and actions without you realising
  • Racial Identity Theory
  • The link with Well-Being Protective Factors

Towards the end of the session, attendees will be given time to consider the foundations for improvement – the vision for their school; curriculum intent; how might organisational cultural competence be evaluated and developed – and to look at some tools/key questions to support work on this area.

The session will be delivered by local leaders experienced in this field and repeated during the spring and summer terms.
