BERA awarded ACSS funding to support EDI initiatives
8 Dec 2023
We are delighted to be partnering with the British Psychological Society (BPS) as they pilot a teaching resource for KS3 and KS4 secondary school students on the history of IQ testing and psychology’s historic contribution to enabling a discriminatory education system in the UK. this is a project funded by the EDI Project which is a joint programme between The Academy of Social Sciences (AcSS), its member Social Science Societies and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The project aims to encourage and facilitate greater awareness of, and actions to support, EDI across member social science societies, by working together to share resources, learning and to maximise the potential to effect real and positive change. The collaborative approach taken by the BPA and BERA ensures an expert panel of historians, psychologists and educational experts will provide valuable insights in developing the resource. We will be putting out a call for members in the new year.
