North of England Education Conference 2014

We’d like to invite you to join us in Nottingham for the 110th North of England Education Conference, the UK’s biggest annual education conference. It will be hosted right in the City Centre, from the 15th to 17th January 2014.

We’re looking at the role of education, across all sectors, in fostering innovation, inspiring creativity and improving the employability of our learners. We’ll be discussing how early years settings, schools & academies and further and higher education institutions can work collaboratively to get young people ready for the world of work, in new and emerging industries.

We’ll be examining new models of delivery to support transformation of the education system and we’re hosting some exciting guest speakers to challenge our thinking and spark the debate.

Speakers include:

  • Charlie Taylor – Chief Executive of the National College for Teaching and Leadership
  • Dr Maggie Atkinson – Children’s Commissioner for England
  • Neil Carberry – Director of Employment and Skills at the Confederation of British Industry (CBI)

The North of England Education Conference, hosted in Nottingham, is a unique opportunity to hear from the best, share your views and join the debate.
