Queen's Speech - AoC responds

27 April 2020

Responding to the Queen's Speech in Westminster today, Deputy Chief Executive Julian Gravatt said: “I am pleased that the Queen's speech confirmed the Government's commitment to the start of proper investment in technical and professional education. It is clear that Brexit will dominate this new Parliament, but the focus on further education is what the country will need when and however we leave the European Union. Now, is the time to create a post-16 education system fit for the future, one that is coherent, joined up and providing the opportunities and choices for those that have been neglected for far too long.” You can find out everything that featured in the speech here.
