The Sunday Times Festival of Education, in partnership with Microsoft, takes place on the weekend of 25th and 26th June at Wellington College, near Bracknell, Berkshire.
The festival offers the rare opportunity for those genuinely interested in education to gather together to listen to and exchange views with politicians, educationalists, school leaders, think tank experts and media personalities on the topics that matter. The programme will include the former CEO of Tesco, Sir Terry Leahy, talking about education and business, and Sir Bob Geldof has just confirmed too, according to the website.
What do we need to teach the Facebook generation is likely to be another lively debate.
Whether you are a student, a teacher, a parent, a politician, a stakeholder in education-related business, the festival will offer you the chance to get involved and to hear what the leading thinkers consider to be the way forward for education in this country.
Tickets are £30 for a one day pass, £50 for a weekend pass and £15 for a student day pass.
