Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

The 2030 agenda seeks to deliver a ‘quality education , which can be defined as facilitating human relationships characterised by justice and peace and serving mutual interests such as greater equity, respect, and understanding’  (UKSSD) and poverty is still a barrier to education. Everywhere.

Quality education is relevant to and improves a person’s lifestyle:  through work and training leading to employment or another meaningful role in society.

The SWLFSC believes that such learning is a life-long right for people in the South West with stories recognising that it looks different in our universities, schools and workplaces.
