Report Advancing Shared Education
This report presents our vision for how shared education can best be taken forward in Northern Ireland.
We were appointed in July 2012 by John O’Dowd MLA, Minister of Education, to explore and bring forward recommendations to him on how to advance shared education in the region. Our appointment represents the first of three key commitments in the Northern Ireland Executive’s Programme for Government 2011-15 regarding shared education.
The intention is that this report will inform the development of a strategy to achieve the other two commitments; namely that all children have the opportunity to participate in shared education programmes and that there is a substantial increase in the number of schools sharing facilities by 2015.
