FEA and Teach First Drinks Reception at Conservative Party Conference

“Education as the Social Mobility Engine: Improving Young People’s Progression from School”


Keynote Speech:

 Neil Carmichael MP

Chair of the Education Select Committee


The Fair Education Alliance and Teach First would like to invite you to a joint drinks reception at the 2016 Conservative Party Conference with the theme "Education as the Social Mobility Engine: Improving Young People's Progression from School."

Please note that this event will be taking place within the secure zone. This means you will need a Conference Pass to attend – you can buy your pass here.

Earlier this year, we released our second state of the nation Report Card which examined national progress in closing the social mobility gap at all stages of a child's education. In September, Teach First will be publishing their Progression Report highlighting what needs to be done to ensure more young people from low income backgrounds successfully progress to positive destinations when they leave school – be that employment, an apprenticeship or university. 

There will be brief remarks from a number of individuals and a keynote speech from Neil Carmichael MP, Chair of the Education Select Committee. This will also be a useful opportunity to network with organisations from the education sector.

Drinks and refreshments will be provided.

Due to limited capacity it is essential that you RSVP for this event here.
