What is Imagine Education?
Education for people after the age of 16 in Wales needs help. We think students in our nation get a better deal than those across the border in England. But we want them to get an even better deal. That’s why we’re leading this long-term piece of work to Imagine Education.
Imagine Education aims to change the parameters of dialogue, debate and discussion on this issue. We want to influence the upcoming elections for European, UK and Welsh politicians in a way that places innovation firmly on the agenda. To do this, we need a coalition of partners. And, we need to identify the parts of post-16 education that need changing, which is what our the Imagine Education Commission is currently doing.
Imagine what education for people after the age of 16 could look like in Wales. That’s exactly what our student-led commission is doing.
The Imagine Education Commission is investigating what challenges stand in the way of progress and what potential solutions can bring a radical reform to post-16 education in Wales.
The Commission will run from December 2012 to June 2013. Any student attending an NUS Wales member institution can participate in the Commission at any point. NUS Wales President Stephanie Lloyd chairs the Commission.
