For Independent Voices: How a Labour government could help our schools

I’ve written a piece for the Independent’s online comment section, building one of the 14 Things I suggested Stephen Twigg could do, outlining ways Labour can work with academy chains, Outstanding local¬†authorities, universities and others to build a better school improvement system for all schools.

As the next election approaches, with Labour likely to win, many will welcome the greater policy clarity Stephen Twigg has offered in his recent article for the New Statesman: a fully-qualified teaching force, improved post-16 vocational pathways and a requirement for schools to be part of collaborative partnerships for improvement.

The last of these, whilst a positive commitment from Labour, will require careful thought about how, and by who, such collaborative arrangements should be developed.
