Professional Development for Teachers
We value teachers as professional learners who develop their skills and knowledge to drive their schools forward.
Schools Improvement and Enrichment Kit
Schools Improvement and Enrichment Kit (SIEK) is our professional development opportunity where you can join with other teaching professionals and investigate key Black historical figures in Britain.
Explore the history of Black people in Britain from Roman Septimius Severus to Professor Stuart Hall, alongside contemporary issues such as the Black Women’s Movement, British Uprisings and Riots, and Black Underachievement in schools.
The course is led by our Learning Team, alongside professional historians, practitioners and experts in their field within a relaxed environment.
Annual teacher engagement event
An opportunity to network and share issues, experiences and good practice in teaching and recognise the needs of pupils in school education. Through key moments in the archive, in particular newly acquired artefacts in the collection, we encourage participants to generate original ideas for interpretation and learning resources responding directly to teachers’ needs.
Teachers can sample new learning products first hand, such as online resources, professional development, schools sessions and assemblies, consultancy on services for school improvement and enrichment, and edutainment such as re-enactments, visual art, poetry, dance, music and storytelling inspired by the archive collection.
