Education secretary Gavin Williamson will open the Festival of Education today, kickstarting the two-week long virtual event.

The festival will include some of the best-known names in the education sector alongside thought-provoking debate sessions. New ‘Friday Fest’ days will also feature invaluable CPD opportunities for all education professionals. (See the full schedule here).

Thanks to the support of Wellington College – the home of the festival – and partners, the whole event is free this year. Schools Week and FE Week are media partners.

Williamson will provide the opening festival keynote, at 3pm, titled ‘Recovery and reform: Continuing to deliver excellence in education’.
