Over 6,000 teachers and leaders trained by The Black Curriculum last year

A new report outlines the impact that The Black Curriculum made on the lives of young people in 2021

The Black Curriculum, a social enterprise campaigning for Black British history to be included in the national curriculum, delivered training to 6,063 school teachers and senior leaders in 2021.

The figure comes from the company’s new 2021 Impact Report, which also reveals that 1,805 young people were reached through assemblies and workshops.

The report highlights the company’s key achievements from the past financial year, its impact on the lives of young people and the success of key partnerships in driving their goal to make Black British history accessible, accurate and embedded within the national curriculum.

In the foreword, Lavinya Stennett, founder and CEO of The Black Curriculum, said: “The importance of our work only increases as we encounter emerging changes to society and practice within the socio-political space, especially as a growing social enterprise entering its third year in 2022.

“The impact of 2020 and the waves of demand that followed for us, has allowed us to uncover more gaps in the education system but also to reflect on our mission. As the leading arts-based enterprise committed to embedding Black history, we are constantly defining our approaches based on what young people are asking for.

“Through this, our 2022 strategic focus only becomes more tunnel visioned as we build a community of young people whose sense of identity and belonging in the UK and the world improves through the teaching of Black histories.”

By 2025, The Black Curriculum aims to reach 20,000 young people annually and work with every major exam UK exam board. Schools can use their online resources and sign up for a free assembly.
