Education Trends 2020: What’s coming now and next?

Laura McInerney

Do you struggle to stay on top of education news? Are you caught out by new policy ideas you’ve never heard of? In this talk, Laura uses her knowledge from frontline education reporting, and inside sources, to give an insight into what changes are afoot in schools over the next twelve months, and beyond.

You’re never too young to make a difference: how schools can help pupils develop life-long habits as active and responsible citizens

Tom Franklin, CEO, Young Citizens

  • The evidence on the impact that primary schools can have in developing caring and compassionate young citizens.
  • Examples from exemplar schools on teaching active citizenship.
  • Suggestions for next steps – and practical support tools/programmes that are available.


Andy Cope, Art of Brilliance

First of all, yes, ‘bouncebackability’ is a real word and, secondly, we think it’s a modern day superpower.

It won’t have escaped your attention that the world is going through one of its mad phases. And by ‘mad’ we don’t mean ‘a little bit squiffy’, it’s ‘full-on bonkers’. Change has always happened, but recently it’s got a whole lot faster and when life is rattling along at this speed, we need to be more psychologically resilient and adaptive than ever.

Whilst a lucky few seem hardwired to bounce back and grow in the face of full-on change, adversity and setbacks, it doesn’t come automatically to most of us. The brilliant news is that resilience is a learned behaviour. We can all cultivate personal skills and resources which help us not just cope better with stress and adversity, but embrace change and use challenges as opportunities to grow.

Cancellation - if you need to cancel places please email before Friday 13th March. There will be a charge for very late cancellations and no-shows on the day, to cover costs.
