The 2020 Public Services Trust invites you to the launch of, 2020 Education.  This is the final of four new reports from the Commission on 2020 Public Services, following on from our interim report, Beyond Beveridge, in which the Commission sets out its approach on education. 


How can we build the education services that we need - individually and collectively - to thrive in a fast-changing world?  This report presents the findings of joint qualitative work with the RSA in Peterborough which explored the perspectives of students, parents, teachers, employers and others.  It looks at how the Commission’s proposal to move power away from the centre and down to citizens might liberate students and schools, and galvanise a more productive relationship between parents and teachers.  One vehicle for this would be flexible learning accounts.


We are delighted that Sir Andrew Foster, Chair of the Commission and author of 2005’s DfES commissioned review of the future of Further Education, will chair the event. 


This project has been supported by Bouygues.
