What needs to be done to close the gap in achievement, access and aspiration between Britain’s poorest and wealthiest children?

This is the subject up for discussion at a special event being held by TeachFirst at Lancaster University this week.

At the panel and debate event, visitors will hear from a range of inspirational speakers who will be debating the issue, and you’ll be able to share your own opinions and put your questions to the panel.

There will also be a networking session afterwards for all attendees.

Panel members include students and leaders in education and business.

The event is open to all, and is being held on Wednesday, March 13 from 6pm to 8pm in the Engineering Masters Suite, C FLoor, Engineering Building at Lancaster University.
