London Met and the Parents Action and Resource Centre (PARC) invites parents, carers, teachers and all those  who are interested in sharing best practice around improving educational success for Black children and young people to its Helping your child achieve greater success workshop on Saturday 24 November. The workshop will provide advice and information on how to build resilience, improve parent-school interactions and learn from past experiences in addressing inequality in education.

PARC chair, Ade Banjoko, comments, “The Akan principle of Sankofa will be our guide as the event will take a look at past struggles for equality in education to learn lessons and offer solutions to today’s problems.”

The workshop, which is a collaboration between grassroots parents group Parents Action and Resource Centre and London Met, will run from 1pm to 5pm with speakers including Stella Dadzie, co-founder of Organisation of Women of African and Asian Descent and author of Heart of the Race: Black Women’s Lives in Britain. PARC will also provide a free children’s programme for children aged from 7 to 11 years.
