The Society invites and collates views from members, who work across the biological professions, in order to respond to open consultations. We seek to achieve a consensus of opinion and present a unified voice for the bioscience community.
The consultations we are currently in the process of formulating a response to are outlined below:
Post 18 Education and Funding
The Department for Education is seeking evidence to contribute to a review of post-18 Education in England, to ensure that it is: accessible to all; provides value for money; incentivises choice; and encourages the development of the skills that we need as a country.
Closes: 2 May 2017
The future for food, farming and the environment
The Government is seeking views on its proposals for future agricultural policy in England.
Closes: 8 May 2017
Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework: subject-level
The Department for Education is seeking comments from students, providers, employers and sector bodies on the extension of TEF to disciplinary (subject) level from 2020.
