GN21 Focus Webinar - Education & Exclusion in the UK

  • Online Meeting

    Own Homes, Global (map)

    51.553432 -0.134076

  • Join us in this webinar where we discuss with Dhruv Patel whether all children do get the right to education even in developed countries like the UK or whether some children are excluded from this basic human right. 

    You will need to register for this webinarb on the landing page at and this will giove you access to the webinar link to join the discussion.

    The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is the most rapidly and widely ratified international human rights treaty in history. It is a convention that stipulates that all children have a right to education.  The Convention changed the way children are viewed and treated – i.e., as human beings with a distinct set of rights instead of as passive objects of care and charity.

    This webinar will discuss whether all children do get a right to education and especially in the UK and whether all children are treated  “with a distinct set of rights instead of as passive objects of care and charity.

    This Webinar will be presented by Dhruv Patel who founded the Nisai Education Trust to provide support and information for young people, and their parents and carers, where statutory bodies are not currently able to do so.

    Dhruv Patel is the CEO Nisai Group - innovative educational firm established to provide alternative education for hard-to-reach learners. The Nisai Virtual Academy was awarded a Silver Medal at the IMS Global Learning Impact Awards in May 2010 recognising it as being a world leader in personalisation. 

    The Trust provides support for vulnerable or disadvantaged young people where all other avenues aren't accessible. Nisai's passion is to achieve the Article 28 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child that "Every child has a right to an education".

    Clearly this is not the case at the moment as many children are excluded from formal education leaving philanthropic organisations like the Nissan Trust to pick up where the state fails

    Nissan provides educational opportunities for young people who have been failed by the state system many with medical problems and those with behaviour issues, and that raises the question why is the state failing in providing universal education for all.
