Our goal for quality education for all

We believe in quality education for everyone, everywhere and by highlighting the issue and working with experts in the field, we can start to find ways we can all be part of the solution.

Our goal is to help researchers to share their work, and partner to find ways to break down the divides so there is equal opportunity to access quality education and participate in higher education, training and work, with a voice that is heard.  We believe everyone should have a chance to be the best they can be regardless of where they started.

Sharon Parkinson, Publishing Development Manager, Quality Education for all.
