Education secretary tours the Midlands and North of England
Education secretary Damian Hinds has met teachers, children, young people, parents and social workers in the Midlands and North of England.
This was part of a three-day tour to see first-hand how high expectations and the right support can ensure all children and young people get the opportunities they deserve.
With 1.9million more children now in good or outstanding schools across the country, standards are rising. In his first visit to the regions, Damian Hinds visited a range of organisations from across the education system – from childcare through to primary school, further education and support for unemployed adults.
Education secretary Damian Hinds said: “It has been fantastic to get out and meet so many inspiring teachers, young people, children and education leaders who are all working so hard to improve outcomes for children and young people in their area.

“From high-quality childcare to achieving excellent results for disadvantaged pupils and training engineers of the future, I have seen some truly inspiring work.”Read more
