Professor Ewart Keep explores 3 decades of industry-education collaboration

The Education and Employers Taskforce and the University of Warwick have launched a free research seminar programme.

The next speaker is Professor Ewart Keep, Cardiff School of Social Sciences, and the topic is Education and Industry – an overview and critique of current thinking on 23 March 2011.

It will explore topics that get shunted to one side. With youth unemployment high and rising, public money scarce, educational institutions under severe pressure, and the UK Commission for Employment and Skills offering a fresh analysis of the causes of the UK’s ‘skills problem’, the time seems ripe to pose big questions about education/industry collaboration.
