The Educators: Helping young people to flourish

By Future TalentEd

In a series by BecomingX and Capita, leading figures from education explain how to help young people realise their potential.

For careers leaders and teachers, whose role it is to help prepare young people for the world of work, it is clear not only how much pupils have to offer, but that many face challenges which undermine their potential. Barriers to success have proliferated during the COVID pandemic and associated restrictions, widening the attainment gap between disadvantaged students and their peers, and closing down opportunities.

In a bid to pinpoint these issues at a time of unprecedented disruption to education and exponential societal change, BecomingX and Capita interviewed eight of the UK’s top educators and commentators, unearthing four key post-COVID priorities and some creative solutions. Collectively, they argue that education must change now, in order to meet the needs of young people — and of our future economy.

Here, we provide a taster of each, with links to the full videos and podcasts, which are collated on Capita’s website.

Collectively, The Educators identified four key priorities for ensuring every young person is able to realise their potential:

  • The need to ‘level up’ in education

  • The importance of personal development, skills and creativity

  • The need to invest in technology to drive efficiency and enhance quality

  • The necessity for greater mental health and wellbeing support
