Event details

Rebuilding education post COVID

In many different ways, the COVID pandemic has highlighted some of the deep-rooted problems in the way the education system in England currently runs. Drawing on data collected from a series of research projects conducted at UCL Institute of Education, tracking how schools, staff and parents reacted to the crisis, this webinar will consider  the main lessons learnt, and how that knowledge at the frontline can be harnessed so that we do end up with a more resilient and socially just education system going forward.
