Black History Month – HE Subject Insights

Event providers: The University of Manchester

In these inspiring workshops the University of Manchester’s Black History Trail student ambassadors will share their own personal journeys into higher education, will introduce your pupils to a variety of different topics from the degree they are currently studying and will highlight the hidden history and contributions of people of African and Caribbean heritage to their subject area.

During Black History Month virtual workshops will be available to Greater Manchester school pupils from all backgrounds with a main target audience being Black pupils. Each workshop is up to 1 hour long and can be delivered to years 10-13, to groups no bigger than a 1 class size (no assemblies). Please note the sessions will be delivered via a digital platform (this can be via the school’s own platform) and we ask that a teacher is present with pupils during the activity.

  • Optometry
  • Dentistry
  • Medicine
  • Pharmacy
  • Economics and Politics

If we are not able to offer your preferred workshop subject area on the date you have suggested we may offer an alternative subject area for a live workshop or a pre-recorded version for your preferred subject area.
