‘en>route’ is a programme that aims to attract and develop professionals from under-represented Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds wishing to enhance their careers in arts higher education.
The programme demonstrates the University’s goal to develop a dynamic community where ethnic diversity and cultural literacy naturally informs our values, our curricula, our professional performance and creative expression.
The programme has 3 main strands:
To enhance the recruitment and career progression of BAME staff
To enhance staff development for BAME staff and UAL as a whole
To develop an inclusive culture at UAL
The en>route programme has improved our recruitment training, established a mentoring scheme for BAME staff and senior managers, held career development workshops, cultural competency seminars and schemes to diversify the talent pool from which we will draw the next generation of academics and support staff.
