Inaugural Lecture: Professor Kevin Orr
Thursday 1 December 2016 - 18:15
You are invited to:
"Who cares about vocational education and training? Pedagogy and pathways for the ‘overlooked middle’ "
Professor Kevin Orr of The Huddersfield Centre for Research in Education and Society (HudCRES) will examine the role of vocational education and training in a lecture that begins with Belfast’s ‘Tech’ and ends with the University of Huddersfield. Fewer than half of young people at the age of 16 or 17 in England even start an academic A level course and yet policymakers have persistently neglected those taking the vocational alternative, who have been referred to as the “overlooked middle”. This lecture will examine the experience of these ordinary young people and argue that they deserve much better from our system of education, through properly informed pedagogy and clearer pathways to employment.
