  • Active Bystander Training

In conjunction with the Student Union, we have commenced a series of active bystander training for all year group on a rolling basis.

4. Decolonising the Curriculum

Following a survey report by the student union on WMS curriculum which identified the need for more diversity and inclusivity in the pedagogical approach, we are actively analysing and deconstructing the curriculum to improve ethnic diversity and representation. Full details of the survey are available on the right hand side.
