The University of Brighton is delighted to announce that BAMEed, a national organisation for BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) educators, are holding their third annual conference at the University of Brighton on 15 June 2019.

BAMEed connects, enables and showcases the talent of diverse educators so they may inspire future generations and open up the possibilities within education careers. For more information about BAMEed, please visit their website

We hope that all BAME school staff and interested parties are able to attend this event  and join us as we listen to each others’ experiences and add your voice whether you identify as black, asian, minority ethnic or white  – all are welcome and all are valued

“As a BAME former Head Teacher, I was increasingly aware of the need for more BAME role models in our schools to compliment the growing BAME population in East Sussex. We also recognise the need for support and networking opportunities for BAME school staff.  As there is a low number of BAME staff in schools, this is an opportunity to be part of a support network that provides a forum for discussion and a group with group with shared experiences and interests” John Lynch, BAME Education.

BAMEed would like to support a regional group for East Sussex BAME teachers and school staff, and hold its first meeting at the conference in June. If you are interested in being part of this group, please contact John Lynch at jk33lynch@btinternet.com
