Good Week For
Bad Week For
A report this week has warned that the costs of providing social care threaten to overtake local authorities’ budgets.
A Commission has warned that 55 per cent of the UK’s future job growth will be limited to London and the South-East of England.
Next week Simon Stevens, the Chief Executive of NHS England, will speak at Reform’s conference: ‘Unlocking the Promise of Digital Health’.
Commenting on The Augar Review of post-18 education, Dr Luke Heselwood, Senior Researcher at Reform, was quoted in FE News:
"Slashing tuition fees is a red herring and the taxpayer will ultimately pay the cost. It will not result in better quality courses, improved access for disadvantaged students or stop students leaving university with large levels of debt. Universities need to stop pushing poor-quality courses and start delivering value for the money students pay.”
