The Vision project aims to set out a vision for how the UK can develop an inspiring and high performing science and mathematics education system over the next 15—20 years.
The Committee is examining, specifically for science and mathematics:
We have commissioned research which will provide evidence for the project in the areas of digital technology, neuroscience and psychology, curriculum, inter-disciplinarity and links of science and mathematics with other subjects, science and maths skills and society, students attitudes, engagement and participation and the science and maths teaching workforce.
The Committee believes that three elements are at the heart of an inspirational education system:
The world in 2030 is likely to be very different from that of today. Major changes are likely to take place over the next decades in terms of human population numbers and lifespan, the environment and new technologies. Individuals with relevant skills and knowledge will be better equipped to adapt to this uncertain future.
The Vision Committee believes that being informed about science and mathematics is part of our culture. The democratic process should enable citizens to participate fully in a society which is increasingly influenced by scientific understanding and the creation and use of technology.
Evidence-based and taking into account a broad range of stakeholders’ views, the vision will set out the essential features of a future world-class, high-performing education system, particularly with respect to science and mathematics.
