TNG with Toby Young on Education Reform

  • 23 Great Smith Street London, SW1P 3DJ UK (map)

May's TNG speaker will be the journalist and free school founder Toby Young.

Toby will be talking about the education reform agenda. Toby will discuss whether education reform agenda has been effective and how the agenda can be made more effective. Unlike most journalists, Toby wasn't content to sit on the sidelines and complain. He set up the West London Free School in 2012 and has opened a number of primary schools since. He's currently the Director of the New Schools Network, a charity that assists parents in opening up new free schools.

Toby has written for numerous publications including The Spectator, The Daily Mail and The Daily Telegraph. He wrote the best-selling book How to lose friends and alienate people (now a major motion picture), and appeared as a judge on the TV show Top Chef.

He will speak for around ten minutes and will stick around to answer any questions.

The Next Generation is our monthly Under-30s event.

As ever, there will be complimentary red and white wine on offer.

Please don't turn up before 6pm, as we will not be able to let you in.
