Africa in the UK Curriculum

Our passion and core purpose is to promote Africa in the UK. But how is Africa represented in the UK curriculum? Where are the African and Black British voices in the English Literature syllabus? How do we decolonise the History curriculum? 


Our new project is Poetry in the Primary Classroom – a rich Continuing Professional Development and Learning (CPDL) programme to enhance their enjoyment of and practice with poetry from Africa and the diaspora. 


We are also exploring opportunities to decolonise the History curriculum, and bring the histories of people of African descent to the surface in primary and secondary schools.
