BE FIRST TO LEARN ABOUT UPCOMING EDUCATION POLICY & DEVELOPMENTS!

We are delighted to announce that the Department for Education and Education & Skills Funding Agency will once again be supporting the Schools & Academies Show, taking place this November at the NEC, Birmingham.

As we make our return to London, we are excited to bring back the highly popular ‘Government Education Village’ to the show floor. The Government Education Village will provide visitors with an area to meet with representatives from the Department for Education and the Education & Skills Funding Agency. This is a unique platform to learn more about upcoming policy and developments within the sector, whilst having your questions answered.

Also, the Government Education Village will be hosting mini-demonstrations of projects currently being worked on in Central Government. This is an opportunity not to be missed, register your interest below to ensure you don’t miss out on joining the rest of the education community and be the first to hear when registration goes live!
