Professor Colin Knox & Professor Vani Borooah Ulster:

Delivering Shared Education

Shared education refers to schools from different sectors working together in a sustained process ranging from two or more schools making shared use of specialist facilities through to co-ordinated timetabling, and pupils taking classes across a network of schools.  Shared education is distinct from integrated education in that it involves educational collaboration while preserving community identity. 

The Programme for Government (2011-15) makes at least two commitments to shared education: to ensure all children have the opportunity to participate in shared education programmes by 2015; and, to substantially increase the number of schools sharing facilities by 2015. 

This seminar will consider how shared education could contribute to improved educational outcomes. [Briefing Paper]
