Gypsy, Roma and Travellers

Exploring cultural voice and learner choice

The project aimed to explore and challenge some of the issues facing Gypsy Roma Traveller (GRT) young people as they progress though secondary education in Sussex. It was designed to act as both continuing professional development for teachers and other professionals working with GRT young people. The project sought to serve as an outreach programme for GRT students and their families, specifically targeted to their needs and with the intended outcome of growing their mindset in relation to post-16 choices available. It also aimed to influence policy and practice at both secondary school and university level.
