More Than a Shop presenter Elizabeth Alker chats about the challenges facing education in the UK with The Co-operative College's Principal and CEO, Cilla Ross, and poet and performer David Scott AKA ARGH KiD.

A transcript of the episode is available here: https://www.uk.coop/resources/more-than-a-shop Please note: The More Than a Shop series was recorded before the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic. We felt it would seem odd to release further episodes without acknowledging what’s happening. We considered delaying or adapting the series, but decided that this is perhaps the perfect time to consider new ways of doing things as we all imagine a different future. We hope More Than a Shop provides some light and inspiration in these difficult times. More Than a Shop is a collaboration between Co‑operatives UK, The Co‑op, Co‑op News, The Co‑operative College and The Co‑operative Heritage Trust. The series is presented by Elizabeth Alker. It is produced by Geoff Bird on behalf of Sparklab Productions.
