A London Region Post-14 Network Conference

Recession: Its impact on education, training and learners

14th December 2009

Institute of Education, University of London

The Post-14 Network is pleased to announce its latest conference “Recession: Its impact on education, training and learners” taking place at the Institute of Education, University of London.

During this period of extreme financial turmoil it is important that we consider the impact on learners and learning of the structural changes which are an inevitable consequence of the recession. Our panel of expert researchers will lead the conference through the complex interactions of the economy and education.

This important, strategic conference will assess the impact of the recession, the most significant for years, on learners and learning. What, if anything, have we learnt from the last recession? Where will the inevitable cuts impact, and with what consequences? Is there a global aspect to the recession, and how will regions and institutions respond?  How will learners themselves respond to the recession. The conference will explore appropriate responses, and consider curriculum approaches, and institutional structures that are best placed to deal with the consequences of economic and structural change. The conference will conclude with a consideration of the impact on London as a global city.
