Values-based Education

“Our world so desperately needs hope. The IVET Foundation is bringing this hope, by creating a movement through Values-based Education, which has the potential to transform education and society, so that we can live in harmony with each other and ensure the sustainability of our planet.”
Dr Neil Hawkes, founder of VbE

The Impact of VbE

What is VbE?

Values-based Education (VbE) is an approach to education for schools and other settings. At its heart, its principles are simple. Yet it has a profound impact on learners, schools and on the wider community. VbE has already transformed
many schools by giving learners access to an ethical vocabulary based on human values, such as respect, justice, integrity, harmony, trust and honesty. The structures below will help you navigate to the areas that will help you to either begin the journey of being values-based or embed it still further.

We believe we are at the foothills of a new era of education, one which is more in tune with our learners, with their needs and with the needs of society for a sustainable, compassionate and peaceful future. Our governing charity, the IVET Foundation, is working to develop this new philosophical framework for education.
