Increasing urgency to tackle widening educational inequalities

Evolving role of educators

Peer-to-peer collaboration between teachers is key

Increasing Importance to support teachers

It is crucial to empower teachers, suppory them and invest in continuous professional development of teachers so that they can be more prepared for the 21st century classroom

Educators play an important role in guiding students to adopt necessary 21st century skills relevant to real life such as developing higher order thinking skills, effective communication and collaboration

As technology becomes more embedded in the teaching process, students have access to any possible information and spoon-feeding is no longer viable

Classrooms are no longer teacher-centered but child-centered and gives more importance to students and their learning

Teachers have now become facilitators of learning instead of providers of knowledge

Evolving role of educators

dedicate a fair amount of time to activities for teacher collaboration (OECD, 2004)
Countries such as
Denmark, Finland, Norway and Hungary
  • A study conducted by Goddard and Goddard (2007) found that 47 schools in a large urban school district were positively influenced by teacher collaboration
    • When teachers have opportunities to collaborate professionally, they build upon their distinctive experiences, pedagogies, and content to enhance their lessons
Lord Jim Knight, former schools minister, edtech adviser and life peer
Teachers will be teaching each other, there will be a lot more professional development with peer-to-peer resource sharing.

Collaboration between teachers using technology have been highlighted to help them improve pedagogy

Peer-to-peer collaboration between teachers is key

  • 18 new attendance hubs across 6 regions, bringing the total to 32 and will see nearly 2,000 schools helped to tackle persistent absence
  • With an investment of up to £15 million, over 3 years, the programme will provide direct intensive support to more than 10,000 persistent and severely absent pupils who usually come from disadvantaged families

  • Education funding reaches almost £60 billion in 2024/25 - its highest ever level in real terms
  • Includes additional funding for both disadvantaged pupils and children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)
  • Children from disadvantaged families attend schools with a much lower proportion of children achieving the benchmark of at least 5 A* to C grades.
  • The gap in the academic quality of school attended between poor and non-poor pupils averages at 6.9 percentage points. To be clear this is a very substantial effect.
  • Leads to clustering of students from high-income families in high-performing schools and students from low-income families in the less established schools (IFS, 2022)
  • Inequality is reflected through the North-South education divide, where students in the North are "left behind"
