Anti-Racism Framework for ITE/T Conference
The Anti-Racism Framework was developed through a research project led by Professor Heather J Smith from Newcastle University and Professor Vini Lander from Leeds Beckett University with research support from Marsha Garratt.

The Anti-Racism Framework was developed through a research project which worked with partners as consultors, co-producers and disseminators. The Framework was devised in light of the research findings and is written to instigate and implement systemic change in ITE/T with respect to race and racism.

The conference will offer the following:

  • This conference will provide delegates an opportunity to learn more about the Framework research, structure and implementation
  • The conference workshops will showcase emerging good practice with reference to use of the Framework and enable discussions on how it could be developed to better meet the needs of student/trainee teachers, mentors and teacher educators
  • In addition, the conference will enable wider discussions on long standing issues related to race in ITE/T such as diversifying the teaching profession, mentor training, safeguarding Black and global majority students/trainees on placement etc
