Resources for educators

Students on a ‘Bridging the Gap to Leadership’ placement (in collaboration with Canterbury Christ Church University and funded by HEE) have been creating resources for educators that we hope you will find useful to reflect on and share in your teams.

With thanks to the students who have led the project so far: Emmanuel Alli, Ibrahim Fofanah, Issy Taylor- Gallardo, Hansaka Seneviratne, David Amarteifio, Tasmin Jesse,  Harriet Atkinson, Dimple Hirani, Japeth Rubiato, Phumuzile Sithole, Aliza Ale, Ralph Sevilla and Emmanuel Ozowara.


It is really important that you are aware of the biases that you have, both conscious and unconscious. This tool is a really useful way to help you reflect:   test your unconscious bias tool

On 7th April 2021 the students carried out a webinar , attended by over 80 people, that highlighted ways in which educators can take action to support BAME students on placement: please watch here

Podcast Series: Episode one: David, Han and Issy talk about their experiences and the HEE project.


Episode two: This podcast is an empathy walk with Sabrina Shah, Band 5 rotational physiotherapist at St Georges University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, sharing her experiences as a student and graduate.


This webinar is really important to listen to – it shares lived experiences of students from ethnically diverse, LGBTQIA+ and disability backgrounds. AHP students lived experiences of equality, diversity and inclusion
