At this year’s Labour conference, the Education Policy Institute is partnering with AQA to co-host an open fringe panel discussion: ‘The future of GCSEs’.
The COVID-19 pandemic and the cancellation of exams for two years in a row has raised discussions about the future of examinations. The pandemic and disruption to learning presents a unique opportunity to reassess our approach to assessments to ensure that our young people have access to a system that best prepares them for higher education or employment in 2021.
We are delighted to confirm a stellar line-up of panellists, including Natalie Perera, EPI; Colin Hughes, AQA; Peter Hyman, Big Education and Lucy Heller, Ark Schools. With invited speaker Kate Green, Shadow Secretary of State for Education.
** Note: This event will take place in the conference secure zone. To access the secure zone you will need to obtain a pass directly from the Labour Party.**
