Westminster Higher Education Forum event: Research and innovation in the UK – increasing the commercialisation of research and the impact of European reforms

 
As the Government concludes its National Curriculum review, this Westminster Higher Education Forum seminar focuses on the content of the new curriculum for Design and Technology (D&T) for each Key Stage, due to be introduced into schools from September 2014 - as well as the implementation challenges for schools. It will bring together key policymakers with school and college leaders, teaching unions, universities, employers and other stakeholders. Delegates will assess the opportunities and challenges presented by D&T's designation as a 'foundation' subject, with a much less prescriptive Programme of Study, as well as the level of teaching time required to deliver the new Programme and whether it meets the needs of employers, colleges and universities. See http://www.westminsterforumprojects.co.uk/forums/event.php?eid=548 for more details or to book.  EPC members receive 15% discount. Please contact us for the code.
