Labour’s proposed National Education Service

Today I was listening to and encouraged by a live stream from a labour party conference on education.  The mission set out by Angela Rayner and Jeremy Corben sounded great in many aspects, but of course, labour is not in power.  I must add that I don’t hold political views and just want the best for our children. Here is a link to the recording that starts at 59 mins:

They talked about several topics that really resonated with the work we are doing at Empowering Learning, for example:

  • The funding for education in schools and in particular the budgets to support neurodiverse students.
  • The emphasis on primary education and pre-school support for students and their families.
  • The focus on enabling talented and disadvantaged pupils to succeed, with much focus on unlocking the potential in every child.
  • A more rounded education including the arts and fostering creativity to address many of our modern-day challenges.
  • The social justice about education for all building on the students strengths.

I realise that my work on mental imagery is just a small cog in the bigger picture, but bringing this into the classroom for the very young is a vital cog in them developing successful learning strategies.

There was so much commonality with my new book, The Elephants in the Classroom: uncovering every student’s natural power of mental imagery to enhance learning, I am today sending Angela Rayner, MP, a copy for consideration with the National Education Service.
