Raising The Education Standards In The UK
Following the huge success of the inaugural Independent Schools Conference in 2018, we are delighted to announce that the 2019 event is moving to the QEII Centre on Thursday, 28th November.
The day will feature key topics of discussion including the student experience, teaching excellence and will address the latest policy reforms in the sector.
Why attend the Independent Schools Conference?
The independent schools sector educates approximately 625,000 pupils in around 2,600 schools across the UK. It's vital that they deliver excellent teaching and learning experiences for every pupil and provide the tools needed to increase their attainment.
What's more, there's a growing focus on developing critical links with local schools and local councils to fulfil their pivotal role in enhancing standards of education across the country.
The future of UK education is of the upmost importance and this event is the perfect place to hear from industry leading speakers, debate hot topics and build new relationships with peers that could foster mutually beneficial initiatives.
