The Commonwealth Education Conference is being held in partnership with leading investor in UK education, ATMC, and will have a broad Commonwealth focus.
A key component of UK-Commonwealth collaborations is the education sector. This event will bring together leading innovators from the world of higher and further education, edtechs and others. Participants will be attending from the UK, India, Australia, New Zealand, and more widely.
Covid has changed everything, from student experiences to business models. But education is not standing still. As the new world is reshaped by new pressures, our unique forum brings together innovators from across disciplines to collaborate on how to set the pace, and keep apace, with changes in education. There will be a particular focus on the concept of a Digital Commonwealth, where collaborations across borders are made easier today in a post-pandemic world.
