Education Leadership and Professional Learning Background

The Education Leadership and Professional Learning subgroup is one of the four workstreams within the Scottish Government’s Anti-Racism in Education Programme.


The subgroup has vision that Scotland’s educators and leaders are confident, committed and empowered to promote equality, foster good relations and identify, prevent and deal with racism. As a result of understanding race in an education context, and by deploying skilled and passionate leadership, they can empower and support an anti-racist culture across school communities.
