Who should attend?
 

Now in its third year, the Bryanston Education Summit has quickly become an established fixture in the educational calendar. Big enough to attract a wide range of speakers, but small enough to remain intimate and accessible, the Summit is unlike any other school-focused event in the UK. Each year is themed to reflect the shifting priorities of teachers, and educationalists, as the academic year develops, and as sectors undergo far-reaching change. 

Working again with our media partner, The TES, our theme this year is: ‘Revolution: the future of learning in a changing world’, and we have brought in speakers who are going to address some of the biggest issues facing teachers, parents and pupils today. 

  • Sir Anthony Seldon will be speaking about Artificial Intelligence and what it might mean to teaching
  • Robert Plomin will be discussing how the latest research in genetics could help us understand how pupils learn
  • Claire Fox will be exploring the rise of identity politics and the snowflake generation.

And with a special focus on numeracy and literacy:

  • Alex Quigley will be discussing how the bedrock of all learning - literacy - can be developed and the vocabulary gap bridged
  • Craig Barton will be assessing the best ways to improve how to teach maths.

There are many other speakers confirmed, including Alison Peacock, Jane Lunnon, Ann Mroz, and Nick Rose, and each will be engaging in debate, through presentations, panels, and informal conversations, raising questions, seeking solutions, and sparking constructive disagreements.

For anyone working in education today Bryanston’s Education Summit is unmissable.Come with an open mind, and take part in a stimulating day of professional development. 

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.
