Co-operative schools have rapidly grown in number over recent years. They give a voice to stakeholder members – staff, parents, students and the local community – and are values-driven but faith neutral. They retain an element of democratic accountability which roots them in their communities.

We support schools in adopting co-operative governance models and offer curriculum resources, training for teachers, international linking, enterprise projects and school improvement services to help these schools embed the co-operative values into all aspects of their work.

We also work with co-operatives and youth organisations to introduce the co-operative values and support them in developing co-operative solutions to the issues they face in a rapidly changing world.
