Rob Strathdee – Learning for the Labour Market

From Sunday Morning, 11:45 am on 2 September 2012

Rob Strathdee says more can be done to reduce the influence of social background on educational achievement. Professor Strathdee, Head of the School of Education Policy and Implementation at Victoria University, talks to Chris about the connection between education and the labour market, and what needs to change to allow education to help deliver the promise of social mobility. He delivers his inaugural lecture, 'Social Class, economic change and the competition for advancement through education', on 4 September and it is open to the public.
