Directions

 

Who should attend? 

We live in turbulent times, and for those involved in teaching the future looks particularly uncertain. Trying to make sense of unprecedented change and upheaval, be it political, social or educational, will be a challenge that all schools will have to meet. Perhaps more than ever before, teachers will have to learn from each other, sharing ideas and good practice, so that they are able to better prepare our young people for a world that is increasingly interconnected, but which offers countless opportunities for those who are qualified to make the most of them.

For anyone working in education today Bryanston’s first Education Summit is unmissable. The presentations, panel discussions, and keynote speeches will be given by some of the leading experts in their fields. There will be debate, disagreements, discussion and dialogue, but one thing it won’t be is dull.

Come with an open mind, and take part in a stimulating day of professional development. In turbulent times we need to find not only common ground, but hope and inspiration. We have no doubt you will find all this, and more, at this unique event. 

What will you get from the day? 

The summit offers exceptional value for money. Tickets are limited, and demand will be high, so we urge you to book soon. The speaker programme is hugely varied, and we hope that all those attending will get outstanding professional development from world-renowned speakers, all in one place. There will be a small selection of exhibitors offering you the opportunity to buy books written by some of the speakers, as well as a range of other resources to browse.

On arrival there will be free pastries and refreshments, an excellent lunch, and cake in the afternoon. But what you will take away will be intangible rewards: the notes written, the conversations enjoyed over coffee, the new friendships made, the advice given that solves an issue and saves you time.
