Join the network for a discussion led by Director of the Centre for Research on Teachers & Teaching at the UCL Institute for Education, Professor Martin Mills.

Together we will consider whether or not a National Education Service (NES) is necessary, how it might be achieved and what some of the pitfalls might be.

The National Education Service has been advocated as a means by which to revolutionise the current education system. It is based in part upon the premise that the schooling system in England is broken. Media stories and academic research paint a despairing picture of English education. Schools have trouble attracting and retaining teachers; socioeconomic backgrounds are still a major predictor of academic achievement; the obsession with league tables has come at a cost to expansively rich curricula and pedagogies; exclusions from school are on the rise; and inequities based on gender and race persist across the student and teaching body in schools.

Professor Martin Mills will explore what a National Education Service could mean for teachers and students before inviting guests to discuss in small groups.
