The University of Ulster, School of Education, UNESCO Centre held an online event to launch the ‘Transforming Education in Northern Ireland – Briefing Papers Collection’. The event was attended by representatives of many of Northern Ireland’s leading educational stakeholders as well as business and civic leaders.
The ‘Transforming Education in Northern Ireland – Collection’ brings together twelve Briefing Papers that explore the obstacles and challenges which impact upon the delivery of education in Northern Ireland. Links to all of these individual papers as well as ‘Transforming Education in Northern Ireland – Briefing Papers Collection’ are available below.
The Transforming Education research project highlighted the religious and socio-economic segregated nature of the Northern Ireland Education system and the need for systemic and structural change for a more inclusive, efficient and effective system, which delivers for all our children.
The UU School of Education has received funding from the IEF, the UNESCO Centre, The Community Foundation NI and The Ireland Funds to support this research project.
