CfL events in July

“Anyone who thinks we are just shrinking what already exists on a personal computer simply The Future of 14-19 Vocational and Educational Training
21 July 2010, 11am- 1pm

Event Information

David Miliband recently urged the country to revisit Tomlinson’s proposals for 14-19 education. The Coalition Government has introduced a steady flow of reforms to the education system with the decision to allow schools to offer the international GCSE, abolition of subject-based diplomas, the expansion of academies and support for free schools. However by contrast the future of vocational and educational training is uncertain.

Steve Besley, Head of Policy at Pearson, will consider where the coalition government will take vocational education training policy and whether 14-19 is viewed as a distinct phase of educational training. Mark Corney, Policy Advisor to the Campaign For Learning will act as respondent and Tricia Hartley, Chief Executive at the Campaign For Learning will chair the discussion.
