Key priorities for education recovery in the wake of COVID-19 - raising attainment, student catch up, improving social mobility
Countdown to Reservations End Date
This one day online conference will look at priorities for supporting educational attainment in England in the wake of the pandemic and approaches to support disadvantaged families.
It will be a timely opportunity to consider what can be learned from initiatives and policies that were brought in to help support education through the COVID-19 pandemic, such as the National Tutoring Programme and the education recovery package.
Delegates will assess what has been effective in delivering intended improvements in terms of attainment and provision, as well as in providing the necessary assistance to the sector and its workforce.
