This theme is concerned with inequalities in education over the lifecourse - whether undertaken in schools and universities, or less formally, both in the UK and internationally. The research strand aims to enhance knowledge and understanding of equity issues in education, including factors influencing educational opportunity and attainment. Our research projects consider some of the ways in which equity manifests itself in education, including differential access to and experiences of education across age, gender, ethnicity, disability and occupational class background.
