Education Reform Summit 2015 goes live


Our Education Reform Summit for 2015 has gone live. We are delighted to announce that we are running the UK’s second Global Education Reform Summit on 9th July 2015 in London. Hosted by The Education Foundation we will bring together educators and reformers from across the UK, Europe, USA and around the world.

It will provide an opportunity to hear from inspirational education leaders, teachers, reformers and politicians who are transforming education systems across the world. The summit will gather an invited group of 200 of the UK’s top leaders to celebrate the existing achievements of great educators and organisations supporting leaders, raise ambition and build consensus about where reform should go next, and inspire people to create change on the ground.
