Lewis Hamilton charity aiming to boost number of black STEM teachers in England

The project has launched on UNESCO’s World Teachers Day and during Black History Month

Sir Lewis Hamilton’s charity is launching a partnership aimed at increasing the pool of black science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) teachers in England.

Mission 44, launched by the seven-time Formula One world champion earlier this year, has partnered with Teach First to work on research, mentoring and marketing campaigns designed to help recruit 150 black STEM teachers to work in disadvantaged communities across the country.

The hope is that the framework the partnership creates can then be adopted by other educational bodies to further improve diversity in the profession.

The project, which is launched on UNESCO’s World Teachers Day and during Black History Month, follows findings from The Hamilton Commission that highlighted the lack of black STEM teachers as a barrier to students engaging with these subjects.

Mercedes driver Hamilton is keen to help improve diversity in STEM after noting it had been a “lonely path” as a black individual in the F1 industry.
