Latest: FED Event to launch a Year of National Celebration for the 150th Anniversary for State Education

Fedspace – an online platform to continue the debate

The Foundation for Education Development (FED) was established as a neutral space for sharing views on how to build a longer term approach to English education policy and planning.

We are now launching our online platform Fedspace  to continue the debate and invite you to shape our consultation. We are pleased to invite you to take part in our first series of virtual roundtables, looking at how planning and  thinking longer term might benefit all parts of the english education system.

Long term education & skills plans aligned to regional industrial and economic strategies - developing and delivering a strategy for STEM education

It is generally accepted that the current pandemic will emphasise the existing need to re-design and re-focus our process for building an appropriate skills base for the future. These plans will need to reflect local needs and local strategies. One thing is certain – that a future workforce will need to be educated and skilled in the technical areas related to the STEM agenda.   How do we develop a long-term plan to achieve this across the education system?

Addressing educational disadvantage in secondary schools - a long term vision for education

It is widely accepted that a wide and persistent gap exists in both attainment and progress made by disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers. This is even more acute for those trapped in long-term and persistent disadvantage. The disruption to education due to the pandemic risks widening this gap even further with the most vulnerable affected the most. Now, more than ever, we need a long-term strategy to make real progress on narrowing these gaps.
