researchED 2017 National Conference

9th September 2017 @ 9:45 am - 4:45 pm

researchED’s annual conference is back! The fifth national conference, where we present the best minds and voices in education from the UK and beyond. Come and hear what the latest and best research has to offer your schools, classrooms and students, and speak to the researchers, teachers and academics behind it. Network, get ideas, be challenged and ask questions at one of the education events of the year.

We believe that the teaching profession is at the edge of a change; a change where teachers and schools are guided by the best evidence available, working in tandem with experience, craft and wisdom. Where we no longer work alone, or under ancient misconceptions, but together in an informed community of practitioners. Come and join us.

This event is always heavily attended so please book early to avoid disappointment. The current list of speakers will be built as they sign up, and you can find download links for the programme and timetable closer to the event date.

This event is made possible with assistance from GL Assessment.
