Lessons in good policy making – Reflections from the inside
“There has never been a more important time for education policy” – how often have we heard that phrase over the last 20 or 30 years? Why have so few of the lasting changes that have been heralded by successive governments stuck? It’s time for us to take a step back and learn from the experts about what good education policy making looks like.
In this session, sponsored by the Edge Foundation and the Foundation for Education Development, Branwen Jeffreys, the BBC’s Education Editor will chair a panel of former Permanent Secretaries from the Department for Education. They will reflect on education policy – what worked, what failed, the lessons they learnt, and how we can deliver a more consistent, long-term approach to education policy making moving forward.
