In May 2013, we jointly hosted with the Wellcome Trust a seminar entitled ‘Visions for improving accountability in education’. The seminar was concerned with exploring how education accountability systems should develop over the next 20 years or so, based on perspectives from experts from across the UK and the wider international community.
The seminar was chaired by Professor Geoffrey Boulton FRS and included keynote addresses by Sir John Holman (Senior Fellow for Education, Wellcome Trust) , Sir David Bell (former Ofsted Chief Inspector and now Vice-Chancellor, Reading University), Professor Andreas Schleicher (Special Advisor on Education, OECD). In addition, The Rt Hon. Lord Jim Knight chaired a panel discussion with expert representatives from across the UK including Keir Bloomer (Education Consultant, Scotland), Faustina Graham (Assistant Chief Inspector, Northern Ireland), Professor David Reynolds (Senior Policy Adviser, Welsh Assembly Government) and David Swinscoe (Strategic Director for Science, LSIS STEM Support Service, City and Islington College).
