Making Education a Priority (MEaP): Pedagogic research in action

Academic Leads: Dr Ornette D Clennon with Amber Abisai, Dr Esther Oludipe and Henry Ngawoofah

Since our 2013 conference, we have formed a small consortium of supplementary schools, called MEaP to explore how supplementary school provision could be strengthened as a driving force of community regeneration.

MEaP has also worked with the Faculty of Education (MMU) to develop a PG Cert in Teaching and Learning that has been specially developed for teaching and leadership in community (supplementary) education. Hosted by the Critical Race and Ethnicity Research Cluster, MEaP also runs a Twilight School in the Brooks Building where it offers placements for QTLS (qualified teaching status for post 16 education).

Here is our most recently published research into our pedagogy and its impact on the regeneration of our local communities

Clennon, O. D. (2017) ‘We Don’t Need No Education. (Unless You’re Black). De-Colonised Education as a Tool for Political Activism’. In The Polemics of CLR James and Contemporary Black Activism (pp. 83-108). Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan. DOI: 10.1007/978-3-319-47548-6_5

MEaP is a member of the National Resource Centre for Supplementary Education (NRCSE)
