Taking the Discussion Online


To help our education community connect and engage on a wide range of current issues we have set up a series of free-to-attend webinars. The latest ran on 25th June but you can still catch it on-demand here.

With Crisis comes Opportunity: What lessons can be learned from online teaching?

In a matter of weeks COVID-19 changed how students around the world were educated. The closure of schools not only shook reality but reshaped the perception of what 21st century learning could be. This change has been the perfect catalyst for schools to innovate quicker and overhaul entrenched institutional approaches to learning.  

As private schools remain anxious about the future, we ask if this crisis will see educators embrace ‘the learning anywhere, anytime’ concept.

Hear from Ed Dorrell, Rachel Evans and Ian Phillips as we look ahead, out of lockdown.
