Abstract

This chapter focuses on the development of the Network for Social and Educational Equity (NSEE), which began in early 2017 and continues to the present. A distinctive feature of the NSEE approach is the emphasis it places on the development of inter-establishment and inter-authority collaboration aimed at developing professional practice and sharing expertise in order to tackle educational inequities. Moreover, the experiences suggest that the NSEE approach is often more powerful than externally led professional development strategies. It is important to bear in mind, however, that such sharing of ideas is far from easy in the context of schools, partly because of the intensity of the day but also because of the nature of teacher knowledge. Ultimately, the goal of NSEE is to provide both a national and international network of support and development for educational practitioners and establishments based on a growing body of local, national and international research experiences.
