In May 2012 Global HPO (GHPO) were commissioned to undertake a project to review issues affecting Black and Minority Ethnic Staff (BME) in Brighton & Hove City Council (BHCC) based on concerns that had been raised by the councilís BME Workers Forum. The aim of the project was to help the council identify and address issues of diversity; particularly race diversity within the council's staff group. We understand that the work that has been done by GHPO has been very helpful particularly in enabling BHCC to look at best practice issues in a whole range of policies, procedures, processes and practices that affect staff in the council.
There is a changing population in Brighton & Hove and as a partnership of the Council and schools it is hoped that working together this changing population can be positively reflected throughout the schools, and in particular within workforce. GHPO has now been commissioned to work with the Standards and Achievement Service for Schools in the Council to find out more about the experiences of black and minority ethnic staff (BME) in Brighton & Hove schools and help with the understanding and actions the council may need to take to achieve its aims.
The work of GHPO will lead to recommendations that the Council will work with schools to carry out. The Council would like parents to be involved in detailing their experience of the BHCC schools system from the diversity perspective. Global HPO, with the support of Mosaic, have arranged for an evening session to which parents are being invited. This will give you the opportunity to contribute positively in a confidential environment.
