Join the Chair of Oak National Academy, Ian Bauckham CBE, senior representatives from Ofsted, Nesta and the Chartered College of Teaching as we discuss the Department for Education's curriculum priorities for the year ahead. 

The past year in Curriculum policy has been a turbulent one for many suppliers, with the development of the Curriculum Fund, the emergence of Oak National Academy and the transition to remote and blended models of learning sources of substantial disruption. The year ahead looks to be no different, with the prospect of a new Letters & Sounds tender, rumours concerning a second iteration of the EdTech Strategy, and the continued need to provide avenues of support to schools during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

BESA's Curriculum Conference 2020 will provide a forum through which key policymakers, education research bodies, parliamentarians and suppliers can meet to discuss what lies ahead. The Conference will see four panel sessions hosted over two days, to make it easier for you to take time away from your desk.
