Get involved in the Great Education Debate

Young people, teachers, parents, school and college leaders, academics, employers, policy makers, ministers and representatives of other organisations are invited to take part in the Great Education Debate this autumn to share their views and thoughts about how they can create a truly world-class education system and together make a difference.

Schools or colleges are invited to set aside time this term to hold a discussion with their leadership team, their whole staff as part of a training day, their governing body, their student council and/or their sixth form students. See for information and resources.

GED events will be held around the country this autumn – see for details. Participants are also invited to write an article (up to 500 words) to go on the GED website – email for details.

Register on to read and comment on articles, and post comments in the discussion forums.
