Inequality and Education: taking stock and finding solutions

Mentor

Our Centre for Children and Families are organising this conference to bring together research and researchers working on inequality and education from the early years all the way to young adults.

Date: Monday, 27th June
Time: 09:30-16:30
Location: City University, London (and online)

Register for the conference here.

The COVID-19 pandemic has, in many ways, exacerbated many existing inequalities. This applies particularly to the area of education where the repeated closure of schools and nurseries has widened the gap between high and low achieving students, has led to the disappearance of children in the system and has generally highlighted the important role that institutions and individuals play in the lives of our children.

The Centre for Children and Families are organising this conference to bring together research and researchers working on inequality and education from the early years all the way to young adults. This programme will provide opportunities to discuss underlying trends, capture the diverse effects of the pandemic, showcase successful interventions and explore policy interventions to provide children with a better start both in the UK and around the world.

We are pleased to announce that Juliette Cammaerts, Director of Policy and Planning at the Office of the Children’s Commissioner for England shall be keynote speaker for the upcoming conference.

There will be a number of research projects and initiatives presented at this conference, delivered as part of five themed sessions covering:

  • COVID: interruptions and long-term consequences
  • Language development
  • Attainment
  • Social mobility and young people
  • Reducing disadvantage

This conference is free to attend and will be a hybrid event, held in person and available to watch online. For any questions, please email events@natcen.ac.uk
