Abstract

This chapter examines factors related to the lack of representation and recruitment of teachers from Black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds within the teaching profession in England. It considers policy initiatives and research related to BME teacher recruitment and retention to identify the barriers which inhibit BME people entering the profession; and how current changes in teacher training in England may lead to an even less ethnically diverse teacher workforce in the future.
