Have you ever had a mentoring session on Skype?
Culturally inclusive coaching and mentoring is extremely powerful to unlocking potential amongst aspiring leaders from black and minority ethnic backgrounds.
We will make ourselves available most Mondays to provide mentoring on Skype or telephone for free. You can book your Monday morning mentoring simply by emailing us a date and time. If we are not available, one of us will email you back with our availability.
Contact us so that we can help you achieve your goal. We look forward to hearing from you.

Are you are governor from a black or minority ethnic background? Is your school thinking about its future? What does it mean to be a trust school, an academy or a community school? What is the best for our children, staff and community?

We are planning a joint seminar with the North Kirklees Governor Forum to address these issues so that you are informed and feel confident to speak authentically and ask the right questions. Join on 3rd December 2011.

Diverse Leaders for Tomorrow Programme is designed to support the growth of culturally diverse and culturally literate leaders across the region. The programme will focus on leadership development through school-based activities supported by a tutor led programme provided by the Regional Diversity Steering Group: BME leaders who are experts in their field.

Any black or minority ethnic middle or senior leader who works in a school or children’s centre within the Yorkshire and Humber region can apply for this programme.
