How to plan your time at The Telegraph Festival of Education

Everything you need to know about this year's festival

Posted by Lucinda Reid | June 14, 2017 | Events

The Festival of Education is now less than two weeks away and over 2,500 teachers and education professionals have already registered to attend. They're now busy planning which sessions they're going to attend over two incredible days.

One thing is certain, The Telegraph Festival of Education will play host to plenty of content which will take a forensic look at current education policy proposals and future ideas. From our Research Ed strand to sessions from the Education Policy Institute and Grammar Schools debate the festival is an unmissable policy packed extravaganza not to be missed. 

#educationfest2017 is set to be one of the best yet - with a huge diversity of content. The festival is well known for its wide and diverse CPD.  Come and be inspired by:
