COVID-19 and Post-16 Education Planning for a very different September

I was delighted to be invited to join an online round-table this week to discuss the challenges ahead with Post-16 education. Here you can find a little more information about the report that brought colleagues together and watch the round-table. A big thanks to NCFE, Campaign for Learning and FE Week.

In light of the ongoing situation with COVID-19, there has been a great deal of disruption across the education sector at all levels, the impact of which will be felt long into the next academic year and possibly beyond.

In a new discussion paper published jointly with Campaign for Learning (CfL), education policy consultant, Mark Corney, and Director of Policy and External Relations at Holex, Dr Susan Pember OBE, look at the likely impact of the COVID-19 crisis on post-16 education, the economy and labour market, and outline an action plan to address the consequences for jobs, apprenticeships, youth unemployment and adult retraining.

The paper warns of a “very different September” to the one the Department for Education and the Department for Work and Pensions planned for way back in January, requiring a “different mix of provision and financial support”.

The full ‘COVID-19 and post-16 education – planning for a ‘very different’ September’ discussion paper is available to view and download now.
