Black and Ethnic Minority Leadership – Going for Headship

How easy is it for a black teacher to get a promotion? Getting promoted to headship is considered tough going for senior black teachers.

We visit two north London secondary schools, one with a black headteacher, Luke Burton, who was promoted to headship after one interview, and his experience is contrasted with that of deputy head Guya Persaud at a neighbouring school who has so far failed to gain a headship despite making over fifty applications. The film also shows the work of Rosemary Campbell Stephens, lead trainer with London’s Investing in Diversity programme for black and minority ethnic teachers who want to go for senior posts in schools.
