This is a three-part course. You must attend all three sessions.
Our guest trainer, Liz Pemberton, is taking online media by storm, challenging LAs, EYs providers and practitioners to question more, reflect honestly, dig deeper and do more to develop anti-racist practice in the EYs. Known as ‘The Black Nursery Manager’ Liz has made it her mission to promote inclusive practice in the Early Years. This course will look at: how EYs guidance can support us to work towards anti-racist practice; how we prepare ourselves for unexpected conversations about race when children ask; how we ensure that our practice goes beyond having black dolls and a range of different coloured crayons; and how we move towards a whole team approach and create an anti-racist environment.
Session 1 of 3: Statutory and Non-Statutory Guidance (Wednesday 11th May, 7:00pm – 8:30pm)
This first session will look closely at how some of the statutory and non-statutory guidance can support us to work towards anti-racist practice. This session will closely examine how the Development Matters (2020) and Birth to Five Matters Document (March 2021) can be interpreted to support our journey towards anti-racist practice.
Session 2 of 3: Conversations (Wednesday 18th May, 7:00pm – 8:30pm)
How do we prepare ourselves for unexpected conversations about race when children ask? This session will look at language and how we can best educate ourselves to ensure that we are equipped. This session will also look at how we engage families appropriately.
Session 3 of 3: Resources (Wednesday 25th May, 7:00pm – 8:30pm)
How your resources should be audited to ensure anti-racist practice in the setting, how can we ensure that our practice goes beyond having black dolls and a range of different coloured crayons. How do we move towards a whole team approach to continuously work towards creating an anti-racist environment?
