Education World Forum 2020

Education World Forum

Date: 19 - 22 Jan 2020 Venue: Central London - address to be confirmed
Time: 09:00 - 17:00
Type: Conference Fee: By invitation only

Each year, the Education World Forum brings together delegates representing over two-thirds of the world's population to debate future education policy. The event comprises three days of insight and inspiration from pioneers, policy makers and experts, with many sessions given by education ministers themselves as part of an honest assessment of education's most common issues and challenges. 

This year, we will be attending the forum as one single Cambridge unit which will be comprised of representatives from Cambridge Assessment English, Cambridge Assessment International Education, Cambridge University Press and the University of Cambridge Faculty of Education. As departments of the University of Cambridge, we represent a combined wealth of specialist knowledge and expertise in supporting governments to develop and implement education reform policy. Together, our work includes designing and implementing programmes in curriculum, assessment, publishing, teacher training and raising standards of English language learning and teaching. We create coherent solutions that are scalable, sustainable and have a record of success - working in partnership with local teams to develop knowledge and capacity. 

The theme of this year's conference is One generation - what does it take to transform education? Delegates are to debate and explore issues surrounding the theme in a series of keynote debates, ministerial exchanges and plenary sessions that bring experts, educators and policy makers representing the majority of the world's population together. Jane Mann, Managing Director, Cambridge Partnership for Education, will be delivering a keynote panel session centring on 'Learning Poverty'.
