Education Funding Policy Webinar: reflections on the Autumn Statement

Thursday 23 November 2023

14:00 - 15:00


You can watch a recording of this webinar below:

NFER have identified four key priorities, based on our rigorous research and insights, that we believe should be addressed in each of the political parties’ manifestos in the lead up to the General Election; teacher workforce, skills needed for tomorrow’s workforce, education funding and supporting children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

As part of this work, we will be holding a number of policy focused webinars in the lead up to the general election. We have previously held a webinar which focused on the teacher workforce, and in this webinar, chaired by Samantha Booth (Schools Week), we focused on school funding and the findings of the Autumn Statement announcement, which was held in the House of Commons 24 hours before.

The webinar featured the following panelists:

  • Jenna Julius, NFER Research Director
  • Andrew Harrop, General Secretary, Fabian Society
  • Angus Walker, Account Director, Denford Associates, and former Special Adviser.
