VbE Associates


Our large team of VbE Associates are a body of people who work to promote VbE as a philosophy and a movement in their own settings or organisations. 

They may host visitors, run VbE Network Meetings, work in Initial Teacher Training and some speak at values events. 

VbE is looking to expand our network of Associates to ensure that the many new schools who are interested in finding out more about VbE, have an Associate closeby to talk to and visit.  

Our Associates are supported by the VbE Consultants. 

If you are working in a VbE school, or in an organisation which is aligned with VbE and are interested in becoming a VbE Associate, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
