The importance of educational inequality and place cannot be underestimated as we emerge from the pandemic.
Join us as we examine the findings of a major new report looking at educational opportunities in 8 places in the UK who have borne the brunt of long running socio-economic changes and Covid.
The report was produced by the new Centre for Levelling Up at the University of West London (UWL) and Policy Network.
The event, next Thursday, July 15th, will be chaired by Professor Peter John, Vice Chancellor at the UWL, as well as feature a presentation on the report’s findings which will include a panel discussion with Justine Greening, ex Secretary of State for Education and Kate Green, Shadow Secretary of State for Education.
The new Centre for Levelling Up will be led by Professor Graeme Atherton, the lead author of this report. It will undertake policy relevant research related to levelling up and addressing inequalities associated with place and people across the UK.
