Delivering a Further and Higher Education System That Works for People

CLASS are hosting an event at the Big Tent Ideas Festival, which is taking place on Saturday 31st August, at Mudchute Farm, London, E14 3HP.

Our session is called Delivering a 'Further and Higher Education System That Works for People, Communities and a Changing Economy'

To attend you will need to purchase a ticket for the festival here.

Speakers at the session include Professor Vicky Duckworth, Dr Faiza Shaheen, Amal Bider and Dr Jason Arday.

Debt-ridden students, striking lecturers, underpaid support staff, colleges and adult education centres closing down – the further and higher education system is telling us it is in trouble. Join us for a discussion of an alternative vision of adult education and how this vision can be delivered. We will return to some basic questions, including:

  • What is education for? Is the current system maximising social or even economic progress?
  • Who is the current system actually working for?
  • What type of adult education system delivers social justice while educating the public to flourish in a changing economy?

We look forward to seeing you there! For further information email:
