Session Details

An Evidence-based Approach to World-Class Education

In our opening keynote session, the inspirational David Laws explains why he believes government needs to apply more hard evidence (and less ideology) when making key decisions about the future of education in the UK.

Using rigorous research and a huge repository of data, David and the Education Policy Institute are developing a clear and detailed vision of how a world-class educational environment should function if we want to deliver the best possible outcomes for young people of all backgrounds.
