From Cradle to Grave: Developing Labour's National Education Service
Momentum Education

Add to calendar

The 2017 Labour manifesto announced a cradle to grave, free at the point of use National Education Service that is modelled on the NHS. Yet there has been little detail about what this will look like since it was announced 18 months ago. This session will discuss how we ensure Labour’s education policy offers the radical transformation the system so desperately needs - and what challenges confront us in making this happen.
