Miliband on Personalisation
The last two days has seen Demos, OECD and the Innovation Unit (DfES) hosting an international conference on personalising learning and its implications for public service reform. Contributors included Charlie Leadbeater and other experts hailing from Canada, Denmark, France, Germany and Finland.
The piece de resistance came with David Miliband's speech , which has been posted on the IU website.
It received an enthusiastic reception and he seemed genuinely modest when faced with applause that threatened to turn into a standing ovation. A one off? Or could this herald the dawn of a new relationship between minsiters and practitioners?
