'To keep in step with an ever-changing world, schools can no longer offer an education that lacks dynamism or flexibility. Pupils, parents, teachers, and politicians should all be involved in creating new educational pathways that are fit for an often uncertain future. Debate, discussion and inquiry are therefore essential elements of the way forward.'
Wellington College Festival of Education is designed to stimulate debate and purposeful thinking about educational issues. Experts whose business it is to think in fresh ways about the educational environment describe alternatives to more traditional approaches to teaching. Speakers scrutinise selected areas of educational thinking, examining in depth the ways in which they work and how they might be applied in the classroom.
The Festival offers five quite distinct strands that you may wish to follow or dip into.
Early Years focus: dedicated sessions for Early Years educators and parents
Wellbeing: an inquiry into examination stress, body image and mental health
A developing romance: aspects of the relationship between Chinese and British education
Exploring education: sessions challenging accepted ideas and fundamental concepts of teaching
Multilingualism: looking into the benefits and disadvantages of multi-lingual schooling
