A Young Person’s Journey Through Secondary School

Support Strategies for Young People and Parents Dissemination Conference

A Young Person’s Journey Through Secondary School will share with its audience the research findings of the project with a view to generating a more comprehensive understanding of the dynamics concerning the attainment and experience of young Black British and dual-heritage pupils in schools.

We hope this dissemination event will act as a vehicle to engage with educationalists and funders to address the barriers in developing a learning environment where pupils, parents, support agencies, teachers and schools continue to work in partnership to raise the attainment and address the needs of young people.
