Who should attend? 

Last year’s inaugural Bryanston Education Summit was a huge success, with tickets selling out very quickly. This year’s promises to be equally popular, with keynote speakers discussing how our schools can be improved so that our young people can, in the future, compete in an increasingly competitive and global jobs market.

Working again with our media partner, The TES, our theme this year is: 'Where next for schools? Moving education up to the next level'. We have invited some of the country’s key figures in education to discuss and debate how our schools can improve. We want our speakers to ask questions: how do we ensure that standards are maintained? What should a school’s priorities be when funding is tighter than ever? Will the pressures on young people grow as the influence of technology becomes increasingly understood? Will the independent sector shrink as fees continue to rise (and what impact will that have on the maintained sector)? And we want our audience to engage in in the debates that will follow. 

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.
