About this event

Festival Keynote | Should schools and colleges prioritise wellbeing for its own sake, or because it improves educational outcomes?"

Join us online for this "Temp Check" Festival Keynote panel discussion chaired by Cath Murray, Chief Development Officer, Right to Succeed.

Session description: The Covid pandemic cemented schools' role at the centre of their communities; many delivered food parcels and conducted regular checks on students. But as things return to normal, should the heightened focus on wellbeing continue, and even be a criterion on which schools and colleges are judged? Or is there a danger that in being expected to do too much, schools and colleges could lose focus on the one thing no other institution is tasked with doing: to ensure that their students achieve good educational outcomes?

Panel:

  • Dame Rachel De Souza, Children's Commissioner
  • Helena Brothwell, Regional Director, David Ross Education Trust
  • Hussein Hussein, Founder, Cape Mentors
  • Peter Mayhew-Smith, Group Principal and CEO, South Thames Colleges Group (involved in the country's largest Mental Health Trailblazer)

Abou the Temp Check series

Seismic shifts in thinking and practice were predicted when the first lockdown happened. But has the Covid-19 pandemic actually altered how we think about education? And if it has, does anyone have the energy to make the changes happen?

The Festival of Education's Temp Check panels invite education experts to explore three hot topics and decide whether opinions have irrevocably shifted over the past year, and where to go from here. Taking place on Wednesday 16, 23 and 30 June (17:30-18:15).

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.
