A MESSAGE FROM A FESTIVAL FOUNDER
A message from Geoff Barton, General Secretary, Association of School and College Leaders
Our young people are our future. We owe it to them to help develop the knowledge, skills and qualities they will need to thrive personally and to help our country succeed. At ASCL, we believe that great leadership is essential in a world that is changing fast – beyond Brexit into a world shaped by global opportunities and new technology. This is our opportunity to get education right for every young person, irrespective of their background. ASCL is passionate about the need for an outward-facing, optimistic approach, learning from and sharing with the best education systems in the world. We are delighted to be working with so many brilliant partners to make this the eastern region’s largest and most energising education event ever.
Proud to announce as our first major partners for the 2019 festival!
The Future of Skills: Employment in 2030 is a groundbreaking research paper developed by Pearson, Nesta and The Oxford Martin School.
The findings provide a futuristic look into what skills and jobs are likely to be at the heart of our society.
Supporting Research-led Content
Fully immersed in the education narrative at national and international level, Pearson provide high quality education services and trusted insight. We are proud and excited that Pearson are supporting a number of areas of festival content, from sharing their latest cutting-edge research, to leading a panel of world-renowned educationalists on the future of assessment and the interface between technology and humans.
The Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP) is a national membership organisation that represents the interests of over 900+ organisations. Our members deliver the majority of Britain’s apprenticeships, traineeships and programmes for the unemployed.
AELP’s primary role is to represent the interests of its members, by effectively lobbying on their behalf to government departments and agencies. We work with our members, the government and employers to support the development of policies that deliver high quality, learner-centred, skills and employability services.
We support our members by guaranteeing them access to readily understandable, up to date information about changes to the skills and employability sector… and how they will affect them. And, we provide our members with access to practical support and added value services that strengthen their business.
