Following the Covid-19 pandemic, the past few years have seen a lot of disruption and the accelerated adoption of technology. A number of our speakers will be addressing the different ways that this may have impacted students or teachers, whilst looking forward to helping ‘create the future’ of education, the overarching theme of Bett 2022.
Harnessing the power of partnerships to engage the whole education community
Chair of Theirworld and executive chair of the Global Business Coalition, Sarah Brown, will be sharing how she is working to bring together the worlds of business, philanthropy, social media, and global campaigning to create sustainable change for young people today and future generations.
Sarah is passionate about global education and healthcare, as well as being best-selling author, podcast host, and wife to the UN special envoy for global education, former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Providing equal access to high quality education so that all learners are able to fulfil their potential
Comic actress and writer Sally Phillips will be taking part in a fireside chat with Bett Advisory Board member Carol Allen to discuss SEND and inclusion in education, drawing on Sally’s experiences of parenting a SEND child.
This will tie in with our SEND Friday theme, where the content sessions on the Friday of the show will be more heavily weighted to the SEND aspects of our show inclusion theme.
Delivering a truly inclusive and representative curriculum
Over 225 speakers will be attending the show to discuss a huge range of topics and ideas that are at the forefront of conversation at the moment, from BAMEed co-founder Allana Gay who will explore how to encourage more BAME educators into the profession, to digital enrichment leader Martin Bailey who has been encouraging students to ‘teach the teachers’ when it comes to social media and online platforms.
Registration is open – join the education community on 19-21 January 2022 at the ExCeL London.
