TEP Talks: Reviewing Curriculum Impact on all Children - Working Towards Equality

Event Date: 11 February 2021

The fifth in our series of TEP Talks.

The curriculum informs everything that we do in schools and wider education. But what is the impact of our curriculum on all of our pupils? Are we creating a society in which we are truly working towards equality through the lens of equity?

This webinar will support leaders to answer the following questions:

  • What is the impact of your curriculum on all pupils?
  • What impact does teacher bias have on the pupils they teach?
  • How do we move towards a more authentic curriculum, more accurate assessment and towards a more equitable world?

Pran Patel has 17 years of teaching experience, most recently working as an assistant principal and he has been a successful coach for over a decade.

As a man of colour, Pran ascribes as a member of the ‘Global Majority’. While at university, he started his journey on the anti-racist road. In his inspirational TEDx talk ‘Decolonise the Curriculum’, he describes the moment he realised that the world was tiered away from an authentic truth and that started with the school curriculum. He has recently featured in the Sky News Film ‘Slavery in Britain: What don’t we know?’ alongside Professor Davide Olugosa, Professor Christopher J Brown, Professor Diana Paton and Professor Olivette Otele.

Pran has suffered from depression, anxiety and sleeplessness for much of his life; he firmly believes that we should accept and embrace these issues as illnesses. As such he firmly stands as a mental health advocate, he recently featured in the BBC documentary ‘Why teaching is making me ill’ and has spoken openly about the pressure of the education sector.
