COVID-19 has brought unprecedented challenges to the education system – with widespread nursery, school and university closures. Engagement with remote learning has been lower than with in-person education, particularly for disadvantaged school pupils, and immediate action is needed to help learners catch up. However, this period of disruption has also created unique opportunities for positive evolutions to the education system.
This session brings together policy experts and practitioners to explore how learning has been disrupted by the pandemic and how education providers can address challenges and capitalise on opportunities for positive change.
