Post-14 Network event - Collaboration and Partnership: What's happening in partnerships and institutional identity?
Date posted: 29 October 2012
Wednesday 7 November, 10.00am - 3.30pm
Government policies are changing the nature of Post-14 learning. New institutional types are being introduced and this is having an impact on the nature of existing institutions. The participation age is being raised to 18, but quite how this is to be achieved remains to be seen. The implementation of the recommendations of the Wolf report are feeding through in to the curriculum. New institutional identities are emerging.
This working day will consider how the managers and deliverers of learning are responding to this, focussing on unique features of London as a global city. A perhaps surprising response to an increased emphasis on marketisation has been the development of new forms of collaboration and robust partnerships. Accountability is being localised.
For researchers and practitioners this is a fascinating time of change. This working day will seek to make sense of what is happening, and look forward to what will be the impact of this on the future learning landscape.
