Abstract

This position paper aims to set out our understanding of
important issues around “race” (racialisation), inequality and decolonisation in the context of our Professional Doctorate in Educational and Child Psychology at the University of East London (UEL). When we write about the programme this encompasses the wider tutor team, trainees and interns. The paper was written to crystallise our thinking and set out actions
for change. The process of change is ongoing, and this
position paper represents one step in our journey of decolonisation.
