Education Inquiry Conference

The Compass/NUT Education Inquiry has been working hard over the last 6 months to develop a new model of education. More than ever we need you to be a part of the conversation for developing this new model. So far the working groups, Inquiry Council have helped develop an interim report which this special one day conference will be dedicated to. (You can read more about the Inquiry here)  

In Coin Street Community centre 170 of us will meet to flesh out some tricky questions, explore the essence of our developing model and in participatory and creative ways we will debate and chat things through. To help with this we have Labour Shadow Education Spokesperson Tristram Hunt MP being interviewed by Dame Jane Roberts. followed by conference attendees.
