13:00 to 14:15

Young people and their parents have high hopes for education as one of the cornerstones of equitable societies. As the diversity of learners increases and inequity rises, teachers face questions about their own values, role and collective responsibility in contributing to equitable futures. This session will consider the implications of teacher development, school policy and classroom practices underpinning inclusive and equitable education. The need for teachers to question their professional ethics, values and attitudes will be debated, as will the importance of building teachers’ competences for creating safe and supportive schools for all. What support systems should be put in place to enable teachers to exercise the responsible judgement that is at the heart of their profession?
