General Election 2024: How will the next government close the disadvantage attainment gap?

NFER has identified four key priorities, based on our rigorous research and insights, that we believe should be addressed in each of the political parties’ manifestos in the lead up to the General Election; teacher workforce, skills needed for tomorrow’s workforce, education funding and supporting children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. As part of this work, we have planned a series of policy focussed webinars ahead of the general election.

The third webinar in this series, chaired by Jon Severs (Tes), will focus on how the political parties may look to tackle the disadvantage gap within education ahead of the next general election.

NFER’s Head of Classroom Practice and Workforce, Dr Ben Styles, will be joined by Abby Jitendra (Joseph Rowntree Foundation), Louise Murphy (Resolution Foundation) and Jessica Prestidge (Centre for Social Justice) who will share their thoughts on how the next government could close the disadvantage attainment gap.
