Comprehensive Future are proud to be a part of the Reclaiming Education consortium.  The consortium is holding its annual Conference on Saturday 11th November 2017 focusing on the proposal from the Labour Party that we should establish a National Education Service.

Labour’s widely-welcomed 2017 ­Manifesto included a promise to ­create a National ­Education Service. This conference will ask what ideas lie ­behind this and what might it mean in ­practice, asking:

  • What entitlement should a National ­Education Service offer to all learners?
  • How can we improve access to education and training opportunities for all?
  • How can a National Service offer ­locally-managed delivery?
  • How can an NES deliver lifelong ­education free at the point of use?

Speakers will ­include Kevin Courtney and Mary Bousted of the new ­National ­Education Union.

What’s on your wish-list?

  • Fully-comprehensive secondary schools?
  • Inclusive schools?
  • Properly funded ­further education and sixth forms?
  • Well paid teachers?

Tickets are now available from the Reclaiming Education website. Comprehensive Future is offering a special discount for students and the unwaged with £15 off the ticket price, please write to to claim this offer.
