Where have things gone wrong
Governments remain divided over what are the most effective solutions to the workforce challenge. Yet without clarity on the underlying issues, the solutions offered risk making things worse. In this first event in the What Matters in Education? panel discussion series, speakers will debate where things have gone wrong and how to put them right.
Agreeing an agenda for educational change
In the light of current challenges, Q&A with the audience will clarify an agenda for educational change that puts the role of the teacher back at the heart of the profession.
What Matters in Education? Panel Discussion Series
This series is jointly organised by the UCL Institute of Education Pro-Director Research and the ESRC Education Research Programme (ERP). It aims to spark new thinking across education, social research and the wider social sciences on how research, policy and practice can most productively interact.
Events will be online. Recordings and a summary of the key questions the debate raised will be made available on the ERP website afterwards.
