Higher Ambitions Summit. Rapporteur Report
Nash, Ian
Sutton Trust
The Sutton Trust and Pearson two-day summit on higher ambitions in apprenticeships and vocational education drew more than 120 leaders in education, training and employment, policy makers, academics, and researchers to London. Delegates heard from political leaders stressing the importance they attach to high-quality apprenticeships. Presentations throughout the Summit highlighted the importance of high quality qualifications, designed jointly by education and industry, which are practical and respected by parents, pupils, teachers, and employers. The summit heard how, without effective good quality apprenticeships, the United Kingdom economic recovery could not be sustained. Most of all, the Summit showed how a new era of stability, without the constant chopping and changing of policy with each new government, is needed in order to allow the good apprenticeships and vocational education programs--on which the United Kingdom depends--to flourish. Summit speakers included: (1) Michael Barber; (2) Jeremy Benson; (3) Andrea Bodner; (4) Jeremy Crook; (5) Lesley Davies; (6) Martin Doel; (7) Lee Elliot Major; (8) Matthew Hancock; (9) Joanne Harper; (10) Chris Husbands; (11) David Keeling; (12) Tami McCrone; (13) Frank McLoughlin; (14) Ed Miliband; (15) Ian Nash; (16) Mohsen Ojja; (17) Ben Page; (18) Claire Paul; (19) Ursula Renold; (20) Conor Ryan; (21) Andreas Schleicher; (22) John Spierings; (23) Graham Stuart; (24) James Turner; (25) Ian Walsh; (26) Nick Wilkinson; (27) Alison Wolf; and (28) Rob Wall.
