About the report

Education has the power to be transformative. Colleges and universities sit at the heart of their communities and share a common purpose: to ensure that all people, no matter their background or past experiences, and no matter where in the UK they live and work, can access high-quality and relevant education and skills, and the opportunities that these bring.

Yet too often we present learners and employers with a system which is driven by institutional perspectives and interests, rather than focusing on the wider benefits which could be achieved through a more connected, more collaborative and more ambitious approach to what can be achieved together. This report will be a call to action for leaders of colleges and universities, and for the policy makers who can help or hinder them, to step up and to work together to ensure that the transformative power of further education and higher education extends to every corner of the UK.

The report is written by Sheffield Hallam University, on behalf of the Civic University Network, in partnership with the Independent Commission of the College for the Future. The analysis and recommendations within this report represent the views of the authors.
