Highlights from 2019’s event:

The world of work is changing at an extraordinary pace. There are questions about the role of automation, how we will work with machines, what new jobs will merge, how decision-making will change and whether we have a workforce able to retrain and redeploy as needed. All of these questions centre around the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and ask questions about how we can be responsive to change. This conversation needs to begin at school, and Education Evolution is the vehicle to collaborate with the many stakeholders invested in ensuring a successful future for our young people.

Professional & Industry Partners

Education Evolution has welcomed speakers from Apple, UCL, Deutsche Bank and Accenture alongside notable individuals such as Sir Anthony Seldon and Gi Fernando MBE, and seminars delivered by those working at the cutting edge of primary and secondary education. The conversations have begun, but there is still much to do, in order to ensure that we are supporting our students in the best possible ways.

The feedback from previous conferences has been outstanding:

“An excellent opportunity to hear from and speak to the people driving the change we need to see.”

 “This has been one of the most interesting and thought-provoking insets I have been on. A fantastic day!”

This year’s event will be the biggest yet, and with the support of our partners, we will bring you thought leaders, who are experts in their fields, who will give you their own take on the relationship between school and the world of work, as well as practical tools and ideas on how to instigate change in your own organisations.

Join us on Wednesday 25 November 2020- 3pm to 5.30pm
