The Design Commission, sponsored by CHEAD, The Design Council and Creative & Cultural Skills recently launched the report Restarting Britain in order to examine how design education could help act as a lever to economic growth. The report has four seperate recommendations:
- 'Government needs a national design strategy that it takes ownership of in a well-informed and pro-active way
- 'Whilst government should oppose any move to remove design from the National Curriculum, we also need to think again about how design operates in schools
- 'Further Education routes into the sector need to be expanded and developed'
- 'Higher Education Centres of Excellence - resourve-intensive high quality centres teaching tomorrow's innovators and researching future practice - need protecting and funding'.
Further to the publishing of the report, the issues have been taken up in the House of Lords, which hosted a debate on the topic.
