What is GEC Platform?

The GEC is made up of two parts.

The first, our people. The GEC has over 13k+ online followers and boasts over 300 DEI experts in the Global Equality Collective.

The second is the tech. The GEC Platform is the multi-award-winning cloud based analytical tool for schools and educational organisations, allowing a 'cultural health check' before it’s too late. It is the "world's first diversity and inclusion" platform for education, the only hyper-diverse intersectional big data collector and is being used across 25+ countries globally. It has impacted on 200,000+ students as a result. Our pilot of the GEC Platform student module surveyed 2000+ students from schools around the world, aged 3-16+.

The platform opens a window on schools current DEI position and enables leadership to work with its teachers and students to improve and broaden its understanding through a wealth of resources from the GEC Library and tailored advice from specialists to inform their future DEI journey and strategy. To date the GEC Platform has surveyed 8,000+ educators ( in 24 months) and 5,000+ students (in 8 weeks).

“The GEC Platform is revolutionising not only how education understands diversity and inclusion, but also how edtech can disrupt the sector to improve outcomes for staff and students alike.”

BETT Awards, Finalist in the Innovator of the Year 2023 category

“This is much more than an app or an accreditation. The GEC Platform is a one stop shop of curated research, analytics, expert sector voices, ready-made CPD tools and resources, peer reviewed reading recommendations and a supportive community. This is a springboard to real and ongoing whole scale organisational change and development.”

Emma Turner FCCT, Author and Research Lead for DSAT

“The GEC deals with equality and inclusion from early years to post-16. If people are going to change, all parties need to be on board. The work that the GEC do is invaluable and I am sure that the outcomes will be we don’t need to talk about stereotypes and equality. They will be a thing of the past.”

Graham Andre, BAFTA nominated BBC2 documentary, co-author of ‘The Equal Classroom’ and teacher

Recommended Usage

The GEC Platform opens a window on schools current cultural health position and enables leadership to work with its teachers and students to improve and broaden its understanding through a wealth of resources from the GEC Library and tailored advice from specialists to inform their future inclusion and well-being journey and strategy.

GEC Champions (SLT) are required to complete the Self Assessment (20 mins individual and 60 for a team). Staff surveys take 20 minutes and students 15 minutes (unsupervised) to 30 minutes (1:1 supervision).

Following this, the Champion engages with the data and action plan.

All staff can access the 'GEC Library', a Netflix style online CPD hub, with over 250 materials including lived experience videos and Leadership 'Playbooks'. Materials for student assemblies and lessons can be shared by staff directly.

We recommend that Champions engage at least monthly with the GEC Action Plan and Library once they have their data for action-driven impact. Staff should access the GEC Library for CPD needs - at least termly.
