  1. Learning from the Learners' Experiences Policy Perspectives Nigel Ecclesfield

  2. What are the Government’s concerns? • Economic underachievement i.e. producing a world-class economy for 2020 underpinned by a world-class education system • Public sector reform – return on investment, demand-led services • Negatively defined groups • NEET status • “Hard to Reach” • Disadvantaged • Target setting • Avoiding controversy in education reforms – “Tomlinson”, the focus on ‘A’ Level achievement as the benchmark for the system System-level issues – policy focus – cost of doing something balanced against cost of doing nothing Nigel Ecclesfield

  3. “There is a significant agenda for change for the education and skills system over the coming years. For our country to compete in the future we need to significantly improve our learning, upgrade our skills and develop our knowledge and understanding. Both the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) and the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS) see technology as a vital tool to help achieve our ambitions as set out in the Children's’ Plan, ‘World Class Skills’ and Higher Education at Work – High Skills: High Value. Learners of all ages need the chance to use technology well to support their learning. In some cases this learning is an investment for the future; in others it is more informal; but importantly it can lead to greater productivity and prosperity, personal fulfillment, and a stronger community and a fairer society.” Ministerial Foreword, Harnessing Technology: Leading Next Generation Learning 2008-2014, p3 Nigel Ecclesfield
