The author of the PISA report on educational attainment in Wales, the findings of which are shaking up Welsh education, is to address delegates at a Bevan Foundation conference on 15th November.  Despite the impact of the study it is the first time that Dr Jennifer Bradshaw, National Project Manager for the OECD PISA survey in the UK, has addressed a Welsh audience – she will outline the key findings of the study and explore the issues it raises.

Delegates, from a variety of backgrounds, will learn about the Welsh Government’s plans to address the issues, as Chris Tweedale, Director of Schools and Young People Group, outlines the proposed School Standards Bill.   Philip Dixon, Director of ATL Wales and Catriona Williams, Director of Children in Wales, will respond to Chris’s presentation.

Later in the day, the focus is on the impact of poverty on children’s aspirations and attainment, with delegates having the opportunity to learn from the experiences of schools in the Heads of the Valleys and a major Joseph Rowntree Foundation study.
