Sir Kevan Collins resigns over Covid-19 catch-up plans

Education recovery commissioner Sir Kevan Collins wrote to the Prime Minister Boris Johnson yesterday to offer his resignation after just 5 months in the role.

Sir Kevan has stepped down due to Government catch up plans falling short of what is needed to close the learning gap caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. It was revealed this week that he had asked the government to fund a £15 billion catch-up fund but the Department for Education revealed just £1.4 billion.
