Future of education on timetable at Cathedral lecture

Evesham Editorial 20th Oct, 2022   0

CHAIR of The Times Education Commission Rachel Sylvester will set out her hopes for the future of the education system in a lecture at Worcester Cathedral.

Rachel will be delivering the annual Worcester Lecture, a partnership between the University of Worcester and Worcester Cathedral, on Tuesday (October 25) at 6pm. The lecture is open to all and is free to attend.

The Times Education Commission was set up last year to examine the future of education in light of the pandemic, declining social mobility, new technology and the changing nature of work.

Following months of consultation with experts from across the education, political, business and wider community, the Commission delivered its report earlier this year, setting out a 12-point plan for reform.

The plan has received widespread support across the political spectrum, including former Prime Ministers John Major and Tony Blair, 10 former Secretaries of State for Education and many noted educationalists.

In this talk, Rachel, will discuss the findings of the commission, which is one of the broadest inquiries into education ever held in Britain and the first to look at the system from early years to lifelong learning.

The Dean of Worcester Cathedral, the Very Revd Peter Atkinson, said: “Rachel Sylvester is a much-read and highly acclaimed journalist, and we are delighted that she will be giving this year’s Worcester Lecture in the Cathedral.”
