School of Education

We are committed to developing excellent educators who transform lives for the better.  We achieve this through excellent teaching and research within a scholarly, diverse, creative and safe environment.  
Our vision of education values learning in its broadest sense as an interdisciplinary, personal, social, professional and lifelong endeavour. We seek to challenge existing thinking and orthodoxies in the field of education by stimulating debate and advancing both educational knowledge and practices via the interplay of theory, research, policy and practice.
