Commitment to equality of opportunity

Teaching in Birmingham

Birmingham City Council ...
  • has a strong commitment to equality of opportunity at all levels throughout the service;

  • takes positive action to increase members from groups currently under represented in the teaching profession. To strengthen our multi-cultural, anti-racist and Equal Opportunity perspective we have three major aims:
    • to be aware of and to counter racism and discriminatory practices;
    • to be aware of and to provide for the particular needs of pupils with regard to their ethnic, cultural, historical, linguistic and religious backgrounds;
    • to prepare all pupils for life in our multi-cultural society and build on strengths of cultural diversity.
