The Black Curriculum is an initiative that teaches Black history all year round in the school year, to 8-16 year olds.

The Black Curriculum

The Black Curriculum is a social enterprise founded in 2019 by young people to address the lack of Black British history in the UK Curriculum. We believe that by delivering arts focused Black history programmes, providing teacher training and campaigning through mobilising young people, we can facilitate social change. 

Our programmes are for all young people aged 8-16 and aims to equip young people with a sense of identity, and the tools for a diverse landscape. We are working towards changing the national curriculum and building a sense of identity in every young person in the UK. Read our mission statement here.

The Springboard Programme: Taking it National.

The Black Curriculum is providing free out of school sessions for Black and BAME young people aged 12-15 through our Springboard Programme.  The Springboard programme consists of a wide range of sessions that offer academic and practical skill based development through taught provision of our arts based syllabus. All participants will be exposed to Black British history and are required to undertake projects during the sessions, which can be used to enhance CV’s, work experience and internship applications.

The programme is designed to fulfil our overarching 3 aims:

1) Facilitate social understanding and cohesion

2) Build a sense of identity and belonging  

3) Raise attainment through building critical thinking skills
