Shaping our education system for the next decade.
A day to connect, reflect, and make your voice heard
The Foundation for Education Development (FED) believes we need a ten-year plan for education. Constant short term, politically driven changes simply add stress and confusion to a system whose deep-seated problems need long term solutions.
Our third annual summit, hosted by the Centre for Educational Leadership at Liverpool John Moores University, is all about building the next decade in education strategy. With an election looming, it’s a vital time to hear and share ideas for positive, thoughtful, and practical change.
We invite you to be part of this event and to bring your experience and wisdom to help us shape the next ten years.
Join us and make your voice heard and book your place on June 20th here. https://bit.ly/3AHvbIi
Our unique in person summit will consist of three elements:
- Conference – keynotes and big panel sessions
- Conversation – more intimate sessions with people in conversation
- Consultations – responding to specific needs and ideas
You’ll have the opportunity to participate and have your voice heard in panel discussions and roundtable sessions focused on addressing some critical questions that include:
- What is the future for OFSTED?
- How can we genuinely improve wellbeing across our education system?
- How should we be training and supporting today and tomorrow’s education leaders?
- Can place based approaches help build stronger and fairer communities?
- Is AI really poised to change the face of learning?
- Do we need a new Baccalaureate & Assessment system in schools and colleges?
