PA BESA Educational Publishers Conference

The Creative and Effective Use of Learning Resources
How best to embed published learning resources in schools, and the role they can play

Date: 29 November 2017

Time: 9.00 AM to 5 PM

Venue:  Prospero House, 241 Borough High St, London SE1 1GA

Join us for this day-long conference, the sixth in a series, which aims to explore areas of educational uncertainty and volatility where publishers can contribute.  How will a new Funding Formula impact procurement patterns?  What do government, the inspectorate and schools expect of resources, and what do the first 9-1 GCSE and linear A level results say about the way in which the new curriculum is impacting?  How will recent assessment reviews filter into the classroom?

  • Geoff Barton, General Secretary, ASCL
