Eliminating inequality is a central commitment in Wales’s Programme for Government. On 7 June 2022 the Welsh Government published its Anti-Racist Wales Action Plan. Co-constructed with Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities and organisations, the plan sets out goals and actions to make Wales an anti-racist nation by 2030. It places the voices and lived experiences of ethnic minority people at the centre of all anti-racist policies and actions. The plan sets a goal to embed anti-racist culture and practices in every further education (FE) institution in Wales. To help set a baseline for this work, the Welsh Government commissioned the Black Leadership Group and ColegauCymru to undertake an initial scoping study, to help prepare for a programme of equality research, analysis and development for the further education sector that could be delivered from 2022-23.
The Welsh Government wishes to commission research, co-constructed and co-delivered by minority ethnic people, to strengthen its understanding of further education learner and staff experiences of racism.
