Education On The Move: KASS Conference

31st January 22

19th March 9.30am—4pm

“If we teach today’s children as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.” John Dewey

Each day brings new voices saying our education system needs to change. Despite this, many can be discouraged by the twin challenges of what this change should look like, and of how to overcome the obstacles that perpetuate the status quo.

The reality however, is that there is a lot more innovation taking place than many people realise. Education is already on the move.

Hosted by The King Alfred School Society in association with Rethinking Assessment, we bring together for the first time a brilliant range of schools from around the country who are embracing reform – all serving very different kinds of communities.

Hear also from the University sector on how their admissions processes are changing, and from employers on the new methods they are using to hire recruits.

Explore what changes can be made now, how to bring your community with you, and why we inadvertently do a disservice to our young people if we keep things as they are.

Amongst our outstanding rosta of speakers, we are especially delighted to welcome our keynote, Gwyn ap Harri, founder of the XP Schools who was recently featured by the Times Education Commission.
