Wales becomes first Nation in the UK to introduce BAME History into its national curriculum.

Wales has recently taken a historic step and has introduced Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic (BAME) history into it's national curriculum. This means that the areas of learning will have a requirement to reflect the diverse experiences & contributions of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities and people, in both the past and present Wales.

We at Soaring Stars Education think this is fantastic news and could not have come any sooner. We hope that this will have a knock-on effect and will inspire other nations in the United Kingdom to do the same. This represents an enormous step forward in making the curriculum more inclusive and has the potential to inspire a generation of young people, A spokesperson from the Welsh government is quoted saying;

“In order to progress as a society, our education system must broaden our understanding and knowledge of the many cultures which have built our past and present.”

It is currently Black History Month here in the United Kingdom and there are currently many special events, seminars, conferences, fairs, community meetings, and exhibitions going on, with a large emphasis being placed on issues surrounding our community. We at Soaring Stars Education teach Black History all year round in our Saturday School so we welcome the news of this change, as do many other organisations who have been working tirelessly in this space.
