Network for Social and Educational Equity

Part of the Robert Owen Centre for Educational Change at the University of Glasgow, the Network for Social & Educational Equity (NSEE) aims to close the poverty-related attainment gap in young people’s education by improving literacy, numeracy, and health and well-being outcomes.

We use research evidence, data approaches and collaborative working techniques to improve classroom practices, build leadership capacity among teachers and students, and support organisational development.

NSEE builds on approaches that have a track record for improving outcomes for disadvantaged students.

We prioritise:

  • Enhancing the quality of learning and teaching, leadership and working with families and communities
  • Building leadership capacity to manage change and improvement at all levels
  • Building expertise for the effective use of the Pupil Equity Fund and understanding about what works and why in closing the attainment gap
  • Providing opportunities for sharing expertise and developing new practices both locally and nationally.
