Bett Academies Summit

16 - 17 Mar 2017

Event Information

Event Details

Bett Academies has been developed as a direct response to research conducted with school leaders from the Academy and MAT community. This research highlighted the demand for an event built around Academisation and forming MATs; an important and growing feature of the current education landscape.
Bett Academies will bring together 1,000 of the most senior leaders and business managers from MATs and academies to form a national centre of excellence dedicated to providing the very best advice, guidance and inspiration to academies, MATs and schools exploring academisation.

There will be over 20 hours of insight and knowledge to choose from, with 3 dedicated streams covering Leadership & Business Skills, Curriculum & Assessment, and Multi-Academy Trusts, with expert speakers leading topical discussions. There will also be an opportunity to engage with over 60 of the leading education solution providers, many who will be offering tailored solutions via masterclasses and surgeries on the show floor.
