Labour’s lifelong learning commission: planning for a transformative adult education system
NEON Global Events
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
University and College Union & NEON invite you to the Labour Party Conference Fringe event on Monday 23 September 2019.
Labour Party established an independent commission early this year to produce a new vision of lifelong learning and the tertiary education system to inform the Party’s policies entering the next election. The commission’s final report will be delivered in September 2019. This event will examine the radical vision or education outlined in the report and how it can support the development of a more equitable and effective higher education system.
Contributions at the event will come from Zamzam Ibrahim – the new NUS president, Matt Waddup from UCU and Graeme Atherton from NEON, both members of the Commission and Gordon Marsden MP with more to be confirmed.
Join us to help shape the progress of this important report and share your views on what lifelong learning can and should mean in the early 21st century.
Registration will not be required but please arrive promptly to guarantee entry.
