Diversity, Equity and Inclusion statement of intent

We are building a partnership that is ambitious in relation to its diversity, equity and inclusion responsibilities and expects to be held to account in relation to these. We are committed to creating a sense of belonging for everybody in our partnership where we embrace our unique diversities. We recognise that there are inequities in the education system that we wish to challenge, including barriers in the workforce and the curriculum. We are looking to particularly accelerate our endeavours over the next 3-5 years.  Our specific action plan will tackle existing barriers that we have identified and prioritised – recognising that there is always more to do, as we work towards our inclusive values.

We will go further to ensure that all our practices, support the removal of systematic discrimination underpinned by our shared ambition to improve the life chances and opportunities for KNSTE colleagues, our beginning teachers, teacher educators and the learners in their communities.
