Foundation for education development.
We are dedicated to promoting a long-term vision and plan for education in England. In the spirit of partnership, we will provide a neutral space for policy influencers from education, business, politics and beyond to shape the future.
Only through long term planning, can we fully empower future generations and unlock the country’s potential. Together we can build a world class education system across the country.
From our consultations at St George’s House, Windsor we have 5 Starting Points. We are now looking for responses to our invitation to help shape these points. Working together we can help shape the future. We would welcome feedback via our contact page.
On our new Fedspace link you will find our invitation to continue the debate via our series of virtual round tables.
Our initial conversations at St George’s House, Windsor have led us to 5 starting points for further discussion. We invite you to join our continuing conversations to help shape these further.
Starting point #1We need a cross sector long-term plan for education that empowers future generations and unlocks the country’s potential in a post Brexit, post Covid-19 world.
Starting point #2At regional and local level we need education to be a stronger catalyst for building economically successful communities with education, business and government becoming even more fully connected.
Starting point #3The Covid19 crisis has impacted on our economy and our society. Education has a key role to play in helping our country rebuild and respond to the need for regeneration and employment.
Starting point #4To create a continuously improving system, we need an approach that is agile and creative and learns from successful local, national and international interventions.
Starting point #5To level up opportunities and provide world class outcomes for all we need a connected approach to an ambitious shared pathway, constructed in the belief that by working together we can achieve far more than the sum of our individual parts.
