Last week Michael Gove announced that he is abandoning his plans to replace GCSEs with the English Baccalaureate Certificate, and that GCSEs will now be reformed. Performance measures in school league tables will now consist of an eight-subject measure of GCSEs which could include art and music.

With arts and design education being squeezed in the secondary school timetable, and ongoing funding concerns for arts further and higher education including postgraduate, the conference will explore how we protect the pipeline of creative practitioners to the UK?s highly successful creative and cultural sector.

We are delighted to announce that the following speakers have been confirmed:

Sir Peter Scott, Professor of Higher Education Studies at the Institute of Education

Pauline Tambling, Joint CEO, Creative and Cultural Skills and Director, National SKills Academy for Creative and Cultural
