The aim of NICCY’s education work is that:
“the education received by all children in Northern Ireland must be high quality and must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full. NICCY wants to see inequalities in educational attainment being addressed and all children succeeding in education and developing to their maximum potential.”
The Big Conversation in an ongoing discussion to determine the views of children and young people, their parents and those involved in delivering for children and young people in education in Northern Ireland. As part this, we have developed – with support from our Youth Panel – an Educational Questionnaire for pupils about whether the education system in Northern Ireland is meeting the needs of all children and young people.
NICCY will use the feedback received from the questionnaires to help shape and steer our work on our key priority issue of educational inequalities and inclusion.
