Equity and Well-being
The Central South Consortium aims to support all schools in curriculum development to achieve equity and excellence for all learners. Our national mission recognises that a high-quality curriculum requires a high-quality profession. Enabling objective 3 is to develop strong and inclusive schools, committed to excellence, equity and well-being.
“Working in partnership, we are determined that no challenge should prevent any learner from reaching their potential, including those learners who experience several ACEs.”Education in Wales: Our national mission, 2017
In partnership with with local authorities, schools and support services, Central South Consortium strives to provide collaborative school improvement guidance and support to enhance the outcomes of all learners across Wales.
‘Alongside targeted interventions, improving the quality of teaching is the strongest lever schools have to improve pupil outcomes, particularly for disadvantaged students.’Education Endowment Foundation, 2020
Our professional learning opportunities aim to support all practitioners to collaborate and develop a deep understanding of pedagogy and subject knowledge and its close link with child development; to become research-informed and to learn from local, national and international practice that will allow all learners to flourish, particularly those more vulnerable learners.
All professional learning opportunities in Central South Consortium are designed to support schools to develop as learning organisations across the seven dimensions of the framework and/or to support practitioners in the professional standards for teaching and leadership (PSTL). Through the professional learning passport, practitioners can record their professional learning activities.
