Our young people are our future leaders, thinkers, designers and creators, and we need new ways to define and celebrate their skills and behaviours, fit for the 21st Century. However, with two years of exams now cancelled, the glare of the spotlight has been thrown onto our assessment system. Surely now must be the time to consider fundamental reform of our assessment system?
Building on our initial discussion with Robert Halfon MP, Chair of the Education Select Committee, we look forward to continuing the conversation with Kate Green MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Education and a panel including Dr Sarah-Jayne Blakemore. We want to include everyone with an interest in this topic, including teachers and tutors, parents, employers and students themselves. So join us at the Edge Foundation and Rethinking Assessment movement, as we continue this important debate around assessment. The session will be recorded and will be available following the event.
