I went on to the Leeds Initiative's 'influencing the big agendas' session at the Bangladeshi Centre...

The session had brought together people from grassroots BME community organisations, staff from BME voluntary organisations, representatives from BME faith organisations, BME workers from a range of public sector agencies, BME community activists and workers in public agencies with a responsibility for delivering to BME communities.

I had been asked to deliver a short session on the challenges we face in education, the progress we have made and our proposed improvement priorities... a short session!

Anyway the session went down very well... our real challenge is to learn from what is working and to work with parents and carers, communities and young people to continue to improve outcomes for our underachieving groups.
