‘Visit our schools’ campaign

The Taskforce and its partners are planning a major campaign with the aim of encouraging leading CEOs from the private and public sectors, at the invitation of headteachers, to “visit our schools” during the period of a week in October.

It will be a chance for decision-makers from the private and public sectors to hear from headteachers and young people about the work of schools, and to witness that work at first hand. It will showcase the great work being done by employers and schools. The campaign will facilitate structured discussions and explore practical ways in which we might work together to ensure that our education system meets the needs of young people and their future employers. If you are interested in being involved please contact: carol.glover@educationandemployers.org
