We are a non-profit organisation working to contribute to equal opportunities in education. Our mission is based on 2 points: 1. To create a network of professionals working for educational equity from inside and outside the classroom. Each year we carry out the ExE Programme, a professional development programme aimed at those who aspire to generate educational and social change for the benefit of equal opportunities for all children. Our value proposition can be summarised as follows: Attracting and selecting, Graduates with the talent to become great teachers and with the commitment to seek educational transformation in pursuit of equity. For two years they teach in schools in disadvantaged environments, pursuing the growth of their students and learning from direct experience the causes and consequences of educational inequality. Training and support, Through an extensive programme for the development of teaching and systemic leadership competencies that maximise the impact on their students, the community where they teach and the education system in the long term. Empowering and connecting, After the programme, we accelerate participants' professional careers towards those areas that have the greatest impact on educational equity. This generates a network of professionals who drive educational change from inside and outside the classroom. 2. Collaborating with the social and educational ecosystem to leave no student behind. We are convinced that the journey towards equal opportunities is only possible by adding and joining other people and organisations. For this reason, we work with others through projects that accelerate our impact and we collaborate with entities with which we share the challenge of educational equity.
