Before it’s too late: How can we revive and restore creative and technical subjects in the secondary curriculum?
This FEDSpace roundtable is to stimulate thinking about how schools might offer a curriculum that looks beyond narrow accountability measures to offer a broader and longer-term sense of accountability to students and the wider economy. It is in being run in partnership with the Independent Society of Musicians (www.ism.org), inspired by their current campaign with the Edge Foundation (www.edge.co.uk) to #SaveOurSubjects and redress the negative impacts that the current Ebacc and Progress 8 measures have had on arts and technology subjects.
