#053 – Loic Menzies and Ed Vainker: Journeys through the education sector

14th May 2021

This episode of The Youth and Education Podcast is the first in a special series, taking an in depth look at the topics explored in the new CfEY book ‘Young People on the Margins’. CfEY Associate Alix Robertson listens in to a fireside chat between CfEY Chief Executive Loic Menzies and CEO of the Reach Foundation Ed Vainker, as they discuss their journeys through the education sector and how these experiences relate to themes from the book.

Alix, Loic and Ed discuss:

  • How Loic and Ed first met, and their influence on each other’s work
  • The four main themes from Young People on the Margins:
    • Ending financial marginalisation
    • Looking beyond schools 
    • Taking action early
    • Ensuring young people on the margins are not on their own
  • The Reach Foundation’s plans for the future, and how they will work to bring young people in from the margins
  • How we can work together to drive system change
