Education Lecture - Tuesday 21 June

Our Annual Education Lecture.  This event will be presented on-line and is open both to Company Members and Non-Members to book.

  
Why our schools need a revolution post Covid

Every young person can be excellent at something, can be happy and give value to society. They need the opportunity to explore what they do; they need to develop persistence to succeed; they need to learn how to overcome challenges. But does the current education system provide them with these skills? No - our education system is not fit for purpose. We need something bigger and bolder.

Our keynote speaker, Peter Hyman, will explain how the 'Head, Heart and Hand curriculum' he developed as co-founder of School 21 in East London is an example of what is possible if we want to educate the whole child. Peter is a proactive influencer of change in the education sector with various leadership roles across the education sector to his credit including working as a strategist with Tony Blair in Downing Street. He is the Co-Director of Big Education, a multi-academy trust and social enterprise with a mission to change the way we do education.

The evening will be introduced by Andrew Marsden. A management consultant by background, Andrew is a Liveryman of four Companies and Chair of the Financial Services Group. He helped set up the annual Sheriffs' Challenge, which encourages schoolchildren to work together in developing and presenting persuasive presentations.

Further details about the topic and the speakers can be found here.
