Sharing the experiences of Black, Asian, and minority ethnic geography teachers

Over the summer of 2021 we invited BAME geographers who had been supported through our Geography Initial Teacher Training Scholarships programme to discuss and share their experiences of studying and teaching geography.

In total, eight participants took part in three focus groups. They explored a range of issues through semi structured discussions spanning their motivations for choosing geography, their experiences of studying geography, and their training and professional practice as geography teachers.

The views expressed in this report, unless otherwise referenced, are those of the participants who contributed to the discussions.
