This unit contributes to the formation of a knowledge base for understanding inclusive Catholic schooling. The unit explores the foundations that underpin the characteristics of inclusive and cohesive Catholic school communities. In particular the unit aims to develop in educators an understanding of schools as places of inclusion, built on Gospel values as expressed in Catholic social teaching. The unit embraces the definitions of access and equity in the broadest sense. It explores the role of the educator as change agent and identifies skills required to assist in the ongoing transformation of Catholic schools as places of equity in which whole school approaches to social justice permeate the curriculum, structures and processes and impact on educational outcomes.
