The Education World Forum

The United Kingdom (UK) will play host to the world’s largest gathering of
education and skills ministers.

The Education World Forum takes place from 22 to 25 January 2017. The event sees ministers and their senior advisers representing over 80 per cent of the world’s population gather to debate future education policy.

The event is supported by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), the Department for Education (DfE), the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the Department for International Development (DfID), the British Council and the EWF industry partners.

The Forum offers three days of insight and inspiration from leading education pioneers, policy makers and education experts, with many of the sessions given by education ministers themselves as part of an honest assessment of countries’ common issues and challenges.
