It is a real thrill for Steve to be joined tonight by Manjit Shellis, Director of learning for the UFA (University of the First Age). The UFA is national education charity that does some brilliant work with young people across England and Northern Ireland. Not so long ago Manjit took part in a rich podcast hosted by Anne Glennie.
Tonight we talk about some current educations stories that have caught our eye, then move onto the National Citizen Service (NCS) work that the UFA is helping to deliver. A fascinating insight into a potentially significant project for young people.
