Decolonising & Diversifying the Curriculum - CPD Training

Decolonising & Diversifying the Curriculum Training

What We Cover

Decolonising and diversifying the curriculum can seem like a huge and almost impossible task. We work with educational institutions to embark on this journey to create a more inclusive, decolonised curriulum that is representative of modern-day Britain.

We believe that students’ social, emotional as well as academic development will remain insufficient until the curriculum provides them with different local, national and global perspectives in the classroom and reflect their diversity and culture.

We provide training and consultancy services for developing an inclusive, decolonised and diversified curriculum.
