Episode 18 - Identity with Afua Hirsch
Play • 29 min

In this episode of Oxfordshire Teacher Training's podcast, Matthew Coatsworth talks with celebrated broadcaster and writer Afua Hirsch. Taking themes from Afua's important book Brit(ish): on race, identity and belonging, they explore some of the challenges and opportunities trainee and early career teachers should be thinking about.

Afua and Matthew talk about what happens when you don't even know what it is you don't know and developing a better sense of people's identity in Britain, as well as considering the curriculum in schools, Black History Month and Afua's audiobook series 'We Need to Talk About the British Empire'.

This was a joy to record, resulting in a mixture of real thought-provoking moments as well as great hope for the future. We hope you enjoy it!
