The Mayor of London and Barnet Council are currently finalising plans that could greatly affect our neighbourhood’s employment and housing prospects – and therefore the education and training that our children and adults will need in the Barnet of the future.
Come to the Barnet Society’s spring public forum at 6:30 pm on Thursday evening 7 March to ask local leaders and experts questions about these increasingly urgent matters.
How far should our schools and academies be preparing students for employability?
What can further and adult education do to retrain adults or help them deal with a reduced working lifetime?
Could SMEs and creative businesses offer more local jobs?
Will our children be able to afford to live locally?
The Green Belt
Can our green spaces be protected from development?
