Unconscious Bias CPD

May 10 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Unconscious biases are an integral part of human evolution. They allow us to make quick decisions based upon the evidence at our disposal. Unconscious biases are prevalent across society… and in your primary classroom. Think Physics’ own research has shown that by Year 3, there are already strong gender differences in how boys and girls view themselves and the type of jobs they could see themselves doing in the future.

In this workshop, we examine the science behind unconscious bias, begin to understand our own biases, and learn techniques for ensuring they do not have a detrimental effect on the learning of children in our schools. The session is informed by current research and aims to promote equity and equality for all.

Duration: 3 hours.

Cost: £150 (plus VAT) per attendee.

Suitable for: Classroom Teachers, Science Leaders, Middle Leaders and Senior Leaders
