Event description

Description

Join us at the Cardiff Education Convention 2018. We are facing a once in a generation opportunity to reframe our approach to education and the curriculum. A strong education system provides the key foundation for vibrant, cohesive communities, and a prosperous economy and society.

Whilst teachers and educators have a key role in shaping a future curriculum, others too have a major stake in this enterprise. The perspectives of employers, communities, children, young people and parents need to inform and shape its development too – Education is Everybody’s Business.

In Cardiff we are well placed to bring these perspectives together in one conversation. Cardiff is one of the fastest growing cities in the UK. It is an expanding creative and cultural city with a high proportion of sector leading industries, growing entrepreneurship, thriving arts, sports and leisure sectors, a diverse and active third sector, an improving school system and strong further and higher education institutions.

On Tuesday October 23 Sophia Gardens Cricket Ground will host an event designed to capture wider perspectives on the key challenge of shaping a new curriculum for Wales.
