Seminar on 14-19 education

Joint NUT and UCU Seminar on 14-19 Education

Wednesday, 22 June 2011, 9.45am - 3.45pm
NUT Headquarters, Hamilton House

 
The NUT/UCU recently held a joint seminar on 14-19 education. The purpose of the seminar was to build on the work already undertaken by NUT and UCU on 14-19 education, to relook at these policies in the light of the coalition government's policies and to explore further joint working and campaigning on changes occurring to the 14-19 education.
 
The seminar was also organised in order to contribute to the development of joint policies on 14-19 education between the two unions.
 
The seminar included NUT and UCU members, along with keynote speakers from the Institute of Education. Professor Ken Spours and Professor Ann Hodgson outlined the 14-19 landscape and talked about the Wolf Report on vocational education. Workshops offered the opportunity to discuss 14-19 funding issues with UCU and NUT officials, new structures and institutions such as University Technical Colleges and academies, with representation from the Anti-Academy Alliance and John Offord from the UCU, teaching and learning and the identification of campaigning activities for both unions.
