About this event

Further Up, Further In - Going Deeper

An online conference including free follow up networking events throughout November for Christians in education.

Over 300 teachers and educationalists joined us for our online conference in February. Be part of this growing movement, seeking to be distinctively Christian in schools across the UK and beyond.

In C S Lewis' The Last Battle, the call to come 'further up and further in' is made to those on the cusp of a great new adventure. As those in education with a distinctively Christian vision, we will be stirred through these events, to 'go deeper' into His plans for us personally and for those we educate. Get a flavour of some of our February events here.
