BESA announces partnership with FED

We are delighted to announce we are working with the Foundation for Education Development to help provide supplier insights and views about what a long-term vision and plan for education in this country might look like.

The FED is dedicated to promoting a long-term vision and plan for education in England. In the spirit of partnership, they provide an independent and neutral space for policy influencers from education, business, politics and beyond to shape the future.

They believe that only through long-term planning, can we fully empower future generations and unlock the country’s potential. Together we can build a world-leading education system across the country for our children and young people.
