What’s On » Realising Potential


Our key challenge: how do we maximise realising young peoples’ potential at and beyond school?

We’ve brought together insightful practitioners from education and beyond who are making a real difference to young peoples’ potential through a diverse range of ideas, approaches and initiatives – come and join the discourse and share what we are, could and should be doing . We’ll be looking at:

  • what opportunities are in the digital economy?
  • how are we connecting schools and the world of work?
  • how are we connecting schools and Higher Education?
  • how are we making the most of apprenticeships?

We’ve listed just some of our great contributors below with more to come.
