Educate Together is delighted to announce that it will hold its Ethical Education Conference at The Alexander Hotel, 25-26 November 2016.
With the theme of 'Raising Student Voices', this conference will bring together teachers and educationalists to discuss whole school strategies and classroom activities that will encourage students to speak up and speak out and will encourage schools to facilitate and embed student-led learning.
Following on from last year's success, we will have another TeachMeet, whereby teachers will be given the opportunity to share ideas, resources and good practice in a fun, informal atmosphere.
We will also host a 'StudentMeet' whereby children and young people in Educate Together schools will be given the opportunity to share initiatives and innovations that they have introduced into their schools.
