Our young people are our future leaders, innovators and designers and here at the Edge Foundation we believe strongly in the power of education in unlocking the talent of every young person.
So we are delighted to see education at the heart of Labour’s vision for change. Thank you Keir Starmer and Kate Green for recognising the importance of education “developing the skills ready for work, and ready for life” and the role of work experience in developing rounded learners.
This is something we have consistently called for at Edge. Our Skills Shortages bulletins highlight the importance of essential skills, and our network of ‘Edge Future Learning’ leaders are bravely forging bolder, more innovative models of education. We need to support our young people to learn, adapt and thrive in this changing world of work and alongside politicians of all hues, we look forward to making this happen.
