Early Years, Education and Skills
The Early Years, Education and Skills Policy Commission looks at issues relating to children’s wellbeing, development and care, as well as education training and skills from childhood through adulthood.
It meets regularly to consider evidence and submissions, identify challenges, and develop Labour’s policy in these areas. The members of the Policy Commission are drawn from the National Policy Forum, the Shadow Cabinet and the National Executive Committee. Its membership reflects all parts of our movement, including Labour party members, affiliated organisations and elected politicians.
The Commission will be looking to build on Labour’s commitment to creating a National Education Service. Key areas will include how to make education accountable to the public, communities, parents and children that it serves; enhancing cooperation across all sectors; tackling barriers to learning; and delivering the highest standards of excellence and professionalism from educators.
We will be publishing a consultation paper in 2018.
