Richard Pring to report on 14-19 Nuffield Review to CPSE

4 March 2009 |

Professor Richard Pring will be leading the next Centre for Policy Studies in Education seminar on Tuesday 7th April 2009, entitled The Nuffield Review of 14-19 Education and Training.

Professor Richard Pring is Lead Director, Nuffield Review of 14-19 Education and Training, England and Wales. In 2003, he retired from his post of Director of the Department of Educational Studies, University of Oxford, which he held for fourteen years.

A review of education has to be undertaken from a particular point of view. The Nuffield Review therefore began with the distinctive aims of education and training. The seminar will illustrate how this leads to questioning the 'performance indicators' (whereby the system, schools and colleges are assessed), quality and standards of learning, and the control of the curriculum.

The seminar will be held in the Great Woodhouse Room, University House, University of Leeds, starting at 6.00 pm and finishing around 7.30 pm after questions and discussion. A reception will also be held after the seminar.
