About this event

Following two years of disruption, demand for highly skilled people and for courses in further and higher education is higher than ever.  Schools, further education colleges, universities and employers are developing new ways of working together, building on the spirit of collaboration and innovation that was required from them during the pandemic.  How can we capitalise on this? 


  • Professor Chris Millward, Professor of Practice in Education Policy, University of Birmingham (Chair)

  • Carolyn Chapman-Lees, CEO Titan Partnership
  • Tom Arbuthnott, Deputy Head (Parternships), Eton College
