Sir David Bell cuts the ribbon to open the Student Support Centre at the London Road campus, home of the Institute of Education

Where does the power really lie within our education system? Reflecting on his experiences as Permanent Secretary at the Department for Education and Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Schools, Vice Chancellor, Sir David Bell will provide an insider’s account of where power really lies in our education system during his presentation at the University of Reading’s Institute of Education on 1 March 6-7 pm.  

Sir David’s talk will be the Inaugural Lecture of the new BA in Education Studies. Each annual lecture will aim to shine a spotlight on the special interests posed by this new programme, which started in 2017 at the Institute of Education, currently ranked 3rd in the UK for Education, according to the Guardian University Rankings 2018.  

The programme’s strong focus on inclusion enables its students to explore issues such as creativity in learning, diversity, social justice and disability, as well as many fundamental moral and social questions in education, such as: Why are there differences in educational attainment for different students? Is there a link between health and learning? Do all citizens have the right to an education?

The lecture will take place at the University of Reading’s London Road campus, in the main lecture theatre, building L22, room G01.
