Education Committee to question Education Ministers Anne Milton and Nick Gibb on i) Fourth industrial revolution and ii) School and college funding – Wednesday 3rd April at 10am
Education Ministers Anne Milton and Nick Gibb will answer questions from the Education Committee during the final session for both the fourth industrial revolution and school and college funding inquiries. Members will have the opportunity to put to the Ministers points raised during the two inquiries.
On the fourth industrial revolution, the Committee is likely to ask how the Government is ensuring the school system and curriculum are preparing young people for the challenges brought about by the rise of new technology such as automation. Questions may also focus on the role of teachers and the National Retraining Scheme.
The school and college funding inquiry is examining what the Department’s priorities should be for the next Spending Review period and the case for a long-term vision for education investment. The session with the Ministers could touch upon funding disparities between different stages of education as well as issues around the Pupil Premium and SEND funding and tackling disadvantage.
