Nick Gibb to speak at PA education conference

Minister for schools Nick Gibb will talk about the government’s plans for educational reform at the PA/BESA Education conference later this month.
 
The conference is organised by the Publisher’s Association (PA) in partnership with the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA) and is aimed at exploring the impact of changes to educational policy on teachers, schools, publishers and assessors. 

Sessions will include "One Term In", looking at how teaching experts view the new curriculum at primary level, and "Acceptance of Change", exploring how changes to the curriculum are being implemented in schools.  Mike Cladingbowl, national director for inspection reform at Ofsted, will also be a speaker. 
 
“Over the past four years education policy has undergone radical change,” said Richard Mollet, chief executive of the PA. “This conference… will allow for an exchange of views on the opportunities and obstacles presented by the reform agenda, as well as hearing from publishers how they are responding to the challenge and creating products which are designed to help educators manage these changes.”
 
The conference is taking place on Thursday 20 November 2014 at King's Place, London N1.
