This symposium aims to consider the role and purpose of education in promoting equality and to discuss the longer term social impacts of the current UK system that prioritizes academic performance. The key focus will be to consider how best to promote much greater equality via a bottom up approach to education as well as how a more holistic approach to learning, via activities such as resilience building, could not only improve educational outcomes, but also support mental well-being and the character traits need to succeed in education, adulthood and society more generally.
