Lewis Hamilton launches scheme to recruit black teachers in STEM subjects

Lewis Hamilton is launching a scheme that aims to boost the recruitment of black teachers in science, technology and maths (STEM) subjects. Hamilton said the scheme “focuses on identifying the best way to attract black talent to STEM teaching roles”. The Hamilton Commission, whose findings were published earlier this year, found that only 2% of teachers are from black backgrounds and that 46% of schools in England have no racially diverse teachers at all. It found that black STEM teachers were important to the engagement of young black students with these subjects. Hamilton said he had no black teachers at all throughout his time in education and he believes that if he had had a teacher who had understood his background better, he would have achieved greater success in his studies.
