13 June: #InformEd

Evidenced Informed Education Policy

The changing Labour leadership presents an opportunity for development of the party’s political offer. Education conferences are plentiful, and politically engaged educationalists are too – but there seems to be a disconnect between the practitioners and the policy-makers.

#InformEd seeks to bridge that gap. 

The hope is to gather – under one roof – the people with real, professional experience of working with children, families and communities, and the people responsible for Labour policy.

Teachers, school-leaders, researchers, activists, governors – too often, they can’t make the ‘proper’ Labour conference because they’re working. We need Labour policy wonks and Labour law-makers to come and listen to us.

Date: Saturday 13th June 2020

Time: 10am – 4pm

Place: Sheffield
