“We are proud to be hosting an incredible range of professional development and international insight for thousands of education professionals on 16 April 2018. But, this is much more than a one day event – it’s an ongoing movement; a growing collective of professionals, volunteers and organisations who are passionate about education. Our intention is to empower all education sectors to confidently tackle the big issues, to collaborate, and to share research and evidence-led practice for tangible, positive impact for our learners.
