Senior Research Fellow in Classics Education, Dr Arlene Holmes-Henderson, features in a new University film which showcases the importance of collaboration between academics and policy makers. Arlene researches the teaching and learning of ancient languages in schools and the intersection of Classical rhetoric, oracy and citizenship education. The leader of several research and public policy partnership projects, she talks in the film about her work with the All Party Parliamentary Group for Oracy  and the Department for Education. Arlene is helping to build an evidence-base which supports policy development for Humanities and languages education in the UK, with both parliamentary and governmental colleagues.
