About Festival Keynotes

Across two weeks, we will broadcast a series of keynote sessions from leading educationalists and thought leaders from across the globe. These keynotes will be streamed online and free to attend for everybody.

Festival keynotes will be 60-90 minutes long and typically include a live Q&A opportunity with the audience at home.

Keynotes will be announced via our website educationfest.co.uk.

About the Festival

The Festival of Education has become one of the most exciting, credible and inspiring education events of the year. The global Covid-19 pandemic will once again prevent us from holding the Festival within the beautiful grounds of Wellington College – the home of the Festival of Education.

But we’re excited to be able to provide a virtual festival experience in 2021, and thanks to the support of Wellington College and our partners we’re able to provide free access to all Festival-goers this year.

This two-week virtual festival will host speakers of international renown and topical, meaningful and thought-provoking sessions. Our “Friday Fest” days will provide an array of meaningful CPD sessions across a variety of themes.

It won’t be the same as the real physical event – but we are determined to provide an inspiring virtual space for teachers and educators across the globe.
