Talking points

Join Caroline Wright, Director-General of BESA, who is in discussion with Richard Marett, CEO, and Fiona Goddard, Senior Education Consultant of Whizz Education, on the 30th of June to find out more about how the education sector is coping in the aftermath of the disruption caused by COVID. In this conversation, we will be discussing several hot topics, including :

  • What does the term ‘Learning loss’ mean to us, how do we quantify it, and why does it matter so much?
  • Why is the attainment gap so persistent in education?
  • Is the narrative of ‘catchup’ and ‘recovery’ placing extra stress on students, parents and teachers?
