As part of our commitment to supporting members of our network, BAMEPE are providing opportunities for members to attend conferences at no cost. We believe that is important to try and remove barriers that may prevent access to gaining experiences beyond the teaching environment. Below you can find testimonials of those who have attended so far.

My attendance to the recent BAMEed conference was a amazing event thank you to BAMEed and BAME PE to opening me up to the social side of education and how being a teacher in the education system is a large place to navigate and it’s not just being the teacher of a subject. This event equally enabled me to build a large online network and personal network on my journey to becoming a physical education teacher.

Thank you for an amazing opportunity.


It was great to attend the BAMEed conference, it being my first time, I appreciated having the welcoming faces of the BAME PE team. The workshops were fantastic and the opportunities to network and share experiences second to none!

My name is Ophelia Charles and I am a PGCE student at the University of East London. Thanks to the amazing work that BAME PE do, I was able to attend the BAME Education conference in London free of charge. The whole day was an invaluable experience that I wouldn’t have had without BAME PE. During the day I heard from Key note speakers and took part in educational workshops. It was also an opportunity for me to network with similar educators. As a result of this day I was also fortunate enough to join the no exclusions project which is something that I have been very passionate about for a long time. Without BAME PE, I would not have attended this conference which provided me with knowledge and connections that could potentially change my career.
