We want to see a society where every young person is set up to thrive in life, not just exams. So that even in times of constant change, every child will feel emboldened to contribute positively to the world around them.
We believe that this is everyone’s business. All parts of society, including parents, employers, and civil society, need to work together to support young people and schools.
Our hopes for change for young people and across the system
In 2019 we created our 10 big hopes for change, publishing them with the hashtag #hopes4ed. These are the changes we want to see for all young people and across the wider education system.
Under each hope we have set out a big idea for a solution or approach we want to make a reality. The 10 big hopes for change underpin and drive all that we do.
