Ethnic Minority Parent Workshops

We asked 164 parents from ethnic minorities about the Scottish Education system and their children’s school – 73% did not know what the Curriculum for Excellence was.

Gathered Together are putting together a series of workshops to help parents understand and be more involved in their children’s education and what happens in schools.

We will work with the experts in each field to help those parents who are new to Scotland or those who have grown up in a different education system to help explain different stages and aspects of education.

Our partners will include:

  • Bilingualism Matters
  • Scottish Parent Teacher Council (SPTC)
  • Skills Development Scotland
  • BEMIS Modern Apprenticeship Project
  • Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People
  • EAL practitioners

Each of the six workshops will be run in both Edinburgh and Glasgow from 10.30-12.30pm. (For details about individual sessions go to our events page)

Places are limited so please book your place as soon as possible by filling out the registration form at the link below:
