The disrupted education landscape over the course of the pandemic has highlighted the need to prioritise the sector in the next election. The conference will bring together a groupof high-level stakeholders to discuss which key recommendations should be put forward to parties ahead of the next general election.
England currently has one of the narrowest education systems in the world, with pupils only studying 2.7 qualifications on average post-16. The Royal Society has long been a champion of reform in this area, recognising that young people need to be educated in a broad range of subjects not only to enter the workforce, but also to ensure emotional and mental wellbeing, and to equip them to be active participants in democracy and society.
