Goodison Group in Scotland Forum Debate: Tuesday 5 September at the Scottish Parliament

The Goodison Group in Scotland continued its on-going investigation into education and learning in the future with a debate in the Scottish Parliament on Tuesday 5 September 2017. 

As part of the Goodison Group in Scotland's Future Schooling project, this forum explored how the economy might influence, enhance or disrupt schooling, education and learning in 2030 and beyond.

To stimulate the debate, Professor David Bell was invited to offer his views on the relationship between economic progress and lifelong learning. David Bell has been Professor of Economics at Stirling University since 1990. He has also held numerous other roles both inside and outside education, including as Budget Adviser to the Finance Committee of the Scottish Parliament and Special Adviser to the House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee. He is a Fellow of the Institute for Labour Economics in Bonn and of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, and he is an Honorary Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.
