Do you feel heard? This is your chance to be heard!
We’re so excited to be hosting this forum and offering you the opportunity to have your voice heard.
We’re holding an online event that will act as a forum for discussion about the education system somewhere that people from all backgrounds, all ethnicities and all neurodiversities can come to make their voices heard.
We need to have a conversation that involves a more representative group of people, not just those in positions of power who think they know. The cross-section of the education community needs to be represented.
We're doing this because we feel that there is always room for improvement and if anything is going to change, we need to demand that change.
The time for change is now. This is a critical juncture, brought about by COVID-19. People are reassessing processes and long-accepted 'norms' and asking how it could be done differently.
The education of children could be 'done differently' but how and why? That's where you come in. Click the button below to find out more about our 'why'.
Our event will bring together more than 200 schools from across the UK, to discuss 3 important questions we face as we consider the opportunity we have to redesign education in the UK to better suit the needs of all stakeholders.
Our key questions are:
- What is the purpose of education?
- How do you feel about the current education system?
- What should education look like in the future?
Each school will select 4 delegates they feel represent* their community.
The four voices we feel need to be heard:
*All schools are encouraged to consider the diversity of their delegates.
In these challenging times opportunities for discussion, which are such an important part of belonging to society, have been depleted. We invite school delegates to commune in peer groups and discuss 3 key questions about the future of education.
We will group peers together in breakout rooms of 6 and record their discussions to be analysed by our team of researchers. The findings will be disseminated to press, government and other influential organisations.
Every single penny we raise goes towards putting on the event, analysing the results of the discussions and feeding those results back to delegates, the press, action groups and the government.
