#RethinkingEducation: The Edge Podcast

The Edge Podcast – Rethinking Education S1E1 

Edge is the independent foundation working to inspire the education system to give all young people across the UK the knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to flourish in their future life and work.

In the course of our work with schools, colleges, universities, researchers and policy makers in the UK and internationally, we get the chance to meet some amazing colleagues. We want to give you the chance to meet them too and now through the Edge Podcast – Rethinking Education you can.

Each episode features Edge’s Executive Director, Olly Newton, or CEO, Alice Barnard, talking to two guests with a fascinating take on one of the key issues facing education today. At around half an hour each, we hope you can enjoy the podcast over lunch or on the move and if you’re inspired and want to find out more, join our community or connect with us on social media @UkEdge.

S1E1: Edge Goes to Canada (Virtually)

We love to find inspirational international examples to share with others. Recorded during the Covid pandemic, we weren’t able to complete our planned study visit to Canada and instead went on a virtual visit. In this episode you will hear from:

  • Jeff Warren, interim Chief Academic Officer at Quest University about their innovative model and broad curriculum that supports students to answer their driving ‘question’.
  • Gina Antonacci, Associate Vice-President, Academic at Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning in Toronto about the rich employer engagement that supports their amazing Further Education offer.
