Our values are underpinning and multifarious but the principle driving forces are perhaps seen most brightly in the values of love, peace and courage:
Love for individuals and humanity is our compelling value and the reason why our trustees, advisers and everyone that follows and develops this approach to ethical living commit to and further it under their own volition.
Peace – a key aim of our work is helping people to develop the attributes to see, understand and employ the ethics of sympathy, empathy and trust in order to better acknowledge themselves and live in harmony with others. These are life skills that can change our world.
Courage – this work is demanding of the self and demands a quietly courageous revolution in the way we view and conduct our daily lives and throughout our worldwide engagement.
Through committing to these values for everyone, we work to get closer to:
We continually strive to increase the recognition and respect of the education profession and wider society for a values-led approach. To this end, we are committed to enacting a values-based approach and ensuring that unquestionable integrity is at the heart of their work.
