As part of an ongoing series, EducationInvestor Global’s Business Women in Education network hosted a webinar focused on post-secondary education, the sector’s response to Covid-19, and how it could be re-moulded to better meet society’s post-pandemic needs.

The session, introduced by EducationInvestor Global editor Josh O’Neill, is chaired by Anna Grotberg, associate partner at EY-Parthenon, and brings together Kate Shand, chief executive of Enjoy Education; and Kathryn Skelton, chief transformation officer at FutureLearn. The founding members of the Business Women in Education network are joined by Professor Ray Priest, international director, Asia-Pacific and managing director of University West of England Educational Services; and Rajay Naik, chair of the commission on life-long learning.

During the webinar, the panellists – whose varied expertise lies in tutoring, distance learning, higher and further education and future-focused careers – explore the ways in which post-secondary education providers are gearing up to meet the shifting demands of employers as they navigate the ongoing economic crisis.

The conversation examines the effects of the coronavirus conundrum on school leavers, university admissions and operations, and further education providers, including apprenticeship and training firms; panellists also consider what it means for emerging education delivery models and ed tech, while aiming to provide global perspectives.
