All of our work in the School of Education is underpinned by three core values:

  • We are committed to enriching lives in the diverse national and international communities that we serve through collaborative, transformative approaches to educational research and research-led teaching
  • We believe that a high-quality student experience is paramount: it has been and always will be at the heart of what we do
  • We provide excellent, supportive teacher education which, in the spirit of social justice, empowers educators and researchers to voice key questions about the contexts in which they teach and learn
